From Route 225 (Concord Rd), you can park on street near #15 Buckingham Drive and enter the trail between  #15 and #17.

Or, from Route 119 in Littleton, you can take Beaver Brook Road, to Butterfield Rd. to  Southwick Circle.  Park at the end of Southwick Circle. The trail begins next to the gate.

Be aware that Beaver Brook Road, which usually connects Rt. 225 to Rt. 219, is currently not a through road due to bridge construction.
