The most direct driving route is via I 95 from Kittery to Augusta. At Augusta, exit I 95 onto Rt. 3 heading toward Belfast. From Belfast, continue on Rt. 3 through Searsport, Stockton Springs, Bucksport, and East Orland; at East Orland, follow the directions below.*

From Bangor and points North
Take I 95 South to I 395 East. Stay on I 395 East to Exit 4 (Rt. 15). At the end of the exit ramp, take a left onto Rt. 15 South. Follow Rt. 15 through Bucksport, (it will merge with Rt. 3), until you reach East Orland. At East Orland, follow the directions below *

*Turn right at the Shell Station onto Rt. 15. Follow Rt. 15 all the way to Deer Isle village. At the village center, Rt. 15 splits—Rt. 15A heads to the right and Rt. 15 continues straight. Continue on Rt. 15 to both Haystack’s Center for Community Programs and Haystack’s campus.
