PLEASE NOTE THESE UPDATED DIRECTIONS:

CRNP is located at the Highland Green Development in Topsham. From Route 201 in Topsham, take Route 196 east (Coastal Connector) to the first set of lights. Turn left at the lights onto Highland Green on Village Drive.

After you have entered Highland Green, stay straight for 1.5 miles.  You will see the golf club on your left.  Stay on Evergreen Circle, the winding main village road of Highland Green, for approximately 1 more mile.

Look for Junco Drive on your left.  The parking area for the Ecology Center is straight ahead, on the left. This parking area is for visitors of the Ecology Center only. If you are visiting CRNP to enjoy the trails, please continue on Evergreen Circle approximately 1/3 of a mile past the Ecology Center to Hiker Parking.
You will drive through an area where construction may be taking place but the road will remain passable. After driving down a slight hill, Hiker Parking will be on your left. Please exit the same way you came in, as construction vehicles enter from the opposite direction and there is a gate that is closed daily.
