Although some trails are also town-owned, the three CCMNH parking lots are private property and restricted to Museum members, visitors, volunteers and staff. However, anyone wishing to access the trails but not enter the Museum can park at Drummer Boy Park down the street on 6A and walk to the trails. Unfortunately, the trails are not wheelchair accessible.
