This site is about 3.5 miles from Cornell on the eastern shore of Cayuga Lake. Go through Ithaca to Route 13 north (Meadow Street). Turn left at Willow Avenue. Continue on Willow Avenue to the T-intersection with Pier Road. Turn left and park in the golf course parking area. Follow the narrow gravel road along the Cayuga Inlet to the Biological Station.
Another approach is from Stewart Park. Follow the path at the far western edge of the park across a footbridge to the City Golf Course. The Biological Station is the largely wooded tract toward Cayuga Lake.
