At the Warrensburg Health Center, turn left off NYS route 9 onto NYS route 418, and follow it over and along the river. Cross the river again and follow 418 as it crosses the RR tracks and hooks sharply to the left. Then take your next right, Athol Road, up the hill and around the corner to Veterans’ Memorial Field (it’ll be on your left), about 5-6 miles in all.
FROM STONY CREEK:
Leave Stony Creek center via the Warrensburg Road. Watch for Cameron Road several miles beyond 1000 Acres Ranch Resort. Turn left onto Cameron Road, taking it to its end on Athol Road. Continue straight on Athol Rd. a short distance to Veterans’ Memorial Field, which will be on your left.
FROM NORTH CREEK:
Drive south on NYS route 28 to The Glen. Just after crossing the railroad tracks, turn right onto Glen-Athol Road. Follow it to its end, at the second stop sign. There, when you can go no further, turn left, and Veterans’ Memorial Field will be on your right in less than a mile.
