The Polson Preserve in Ellis Hollow is 4.6 miles south-east of Cornell. Take Pine Tree Road past East Hill Plaza to the intersection with Ellis Hollow Road and turn left. In 3.3 miles, turn right at 1581 Ellis Hollow Road, a gravel driveway. Continue for about 0.2 mile to a wide area along the driveway where you may park. A mowed path on the right (south) side of the driveway leads to a trail into the preserve. (See Ithaca East 7.5' USGS Quadrangle)
