West Acton MAP 
From the east, take Rt 2 West to Rt 111 West (about 1 mile west of the Concord Rotary).  Take Rt 111 through one set of lights, past a school, down a hill over some wetlands (say hi to the peeping frogs!), up into the village...when you've reached the railroad tracks that used to carry a good portion of the apples to market, you're in West Acton!

From Rt 495 and points west:

Take Rt 2 East. About a mile take the first exit. Take a right.  West Acton Center is about a mile from Rt 2...don't forget to stop in at Idylwilde Farm stand on your way to West Acton!
