Directions: County Line Road (CR 65) can be reached by traveling east on US-6, 13 miles from Holyoke, and turning either left or right. The road ends a few miles to the south of US-6, but continues for a long distance to the north. It can also be reached by traveling northeast from Amherst on SR-23 for 8 miles and turning right.
