Head west on Rt. 5 from Fonda to Hickory Hill road on your right.  It is more like a Y juntion than a T junction and it heads straight up a hill.  Follow this past Barker road which is on your right, just after going up a long hill, then look for the sign to the diggings on your left.   Note that the diggings are only open three weekends a year: Memorial day, July 4th, and Labor day.
