Fogg Island Driving Directions: From Cottle Hill Road in Mt. Vernon, turn onto Spring Hill Road. You will pass the “Fogg Island Preserve” sign on your left. Take the next left. This road appears to be a driveway to a small farm but you are going the right way. You may pass a sign on your right that says “Farm Animals, Private Property”. Stay left, and keep going past the house. At the end of the road, you will find a gravel parking area! Have fun on your hike! The trail is located behind the metal gate.
