The Mitchell Street natural areas are south of Mitchell Street and west of Pine Tree Road, near the Cornell tennis and equestrian centers. The best access is via the East Ithaca Recreation Way, which runs between Honness Lane and Mitchell Street. There are parking areas off Mitchell Street. Alternatively, park at the Cornell Tennis Center and follow a paved path between the Tennis Center and Equestrian Center towards the thicket to the west. Keep walking west to the fence, then turn left to a maintained meadow, where you can pick up one of the many trails (See Overview Map below).
