From the either North or South, take the New York State Thruway (I-87) to exit 21 (Catskill/Cairo). Head West on Route 23 for about 11 miles. Keep left and stay on Route 23 at the fork with Route 145. Wave Farm is 3.6 miles from the stop sign at the fork. Wave Farm's entrance is a blacktop driveway on the right across from a bright blue house. If you pass the Gilded Grape or Edison Timmerman Road, you've gone too far.

The closest train (Amtrak) station is in Hudson, 15 miles east of Wave Farm. A taxi from the Hudson train station to Wave Farm costs approximately $35.
Call Hudson Riverview Taxi (518) 828-3355 to have a taxi waiting for you at the station.

Adirondack Trailways Bus runs two buses a day from New York's Port Authority to Cairo, 5 miles southeast of Wave Farm. The bus drives right by the Wave Farm driveway after Cairo on the way to Windham. At the driver's discretion he or she may stop the bus anywhere on route that is safe, so you may be able to have them stop right at Wave Farm's entrance. Note that the Cairo schedule is not currently listed on their website, but information is avaiable via the 800 number.
