DIRECTIONS TO CEDAR POINT YC:

At the third traffic light, turn LEFT onto Winfield Avenue (immediately after passing under the railroad tracks). Go approximately 1.1 miles and turn RIGHT onto Duck Pond Road. Go 0.3 miles and turn LEFT onto Harbor Road. Follow Harbor Road 0.7 miles to the end which is a tiny (very tiny) one-lane bridge onto an island.
