Garvins Falls Road from Route 3 southeast of Concord appears to be the only means of access to the segment of rail-trail between Bow Junction and the Soucook River. Easy access is available at the very end of this rather long road, while a rather steep path almost directly to the falls is available from this road under the power transmission lines.

Parking Limited parking is available at the very end of Garvins Falls Road.
