Directions to Boulder Beach
Take Route 2 through Plainfield, and continue on into Marshfield. Turn right onto Rt 232, and continue through Peacham. Keep driving on 232 until you see the entrance for Boulder Beach State Park on the left – this is Boulder Beach Road. Continue straight and you will reach the entrance to Boulder Beach.

Coldwater Brook Bridge aid station
Approximately 2 miles from Boulder Beach Road at the end of Coldwater Brook Road.¬†Coldwater Brook Road¬†(unsigned) is on the left 1.8 miles from Route 232 on Boulder Beach Road. (Coldwater Brook Road is directly across from Log Pile Lane on Boulder Beach Road.) Google maps may show this as “Gravel Pit Road” – they mean it! A 4WD/AWD vehicle with good ground clearance (such as a Subaru Outback) is preferred to reach the aid station. The path is rocky and bumpy and makes for slow goings. Leave yourself plenty of time to reach the aid station. Park in the clearing just before the bridge and make sure not to block the path.
