Hike Distance?

You will need a compass and be warned this is located on a dirt road and can be a little challenging depending on the season, but it is a 4 season road.
From Cambridge, NY, travel state route 313 northeast toward Vermont. Watch for Eagleville Rd. on your left. Go over the covered bridge. This historical bridge built in 1858, is a Town Lattice Truss. It crosses the Battenkill River in Eagleville, NY just a few miles from the Vermont border. It has a single span bridge, 101 feet long. After traveling over and admiring this fantastic bridge, go left on Binninger Rd. As you travel up the road watch on your left for the Old Shushan Eagleville Cemetery. Interestingly enough, this is called the Binninger Cemetery in local historical records in spite of the sign indicating otherwise and no Binningers being buried here!
With the sign at your back, take 70 paces due south and look for a Revelutionary War Soldier with a Biblical name. Then walk at a 320 degree angle until you are facing a tree with William at your back. Look down and under the flat rock.
Before you leave, be sure to walk about and visit the 150 19th century gravestones in this small, isolated cemetery.
