  • All spaces are handicapped accessible

  • Fully accessible, private bathrooms are availble onsite

If it's been a while since you've visited Topfield (or if you've never been here before), we have a new access road that not all GPS systems have picked up on yet, so here are some brief arrival instructions:

  • From Rt 301, you do NOT take Stonecrop Lane (even though that is our address) - your GPS will probably tell you to turn where you see the yellow sign for Stonecrop Gardens, but you cannot access TEC on that road any longer.
  • Instead, you need to take the turn for Big Woods Trailhead (there is a sign for TEC below the trailhead sign), which is new and not yet on some GPS maps (Google Maps seems to be updated, Apple Maps is not).
  • Coming from the Taconic Parkway (travelling west) on 301, the trailhead is on the right-hand side about ¼ mile before Stonecrop Lane.
  • OR if coming from Routes 9 or 9D (travelling east) on 301, the trailhead is on the left-hand side about ¼ mile after Stonecrop Lane.
  • Once you are on the trailhead road (which is a big, beautiful, nicely paved road) you come up over the ridge and down past a parking lot.
  • After the parking lot you’ll come to a stop sign where you have to turn right or left – TURN LEFT and you’ll be at the entrance gate to Topfield.
  • Note that you will not enter Stonecrop or Glynwood properties to reach us.

If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to our office by calling 845-265-3409 or emailing Otherwise, please RSVP here and we look forward to seeing you on Saturday, March 2nd!
