Park on the nearby road, and walk a little way in publicly accessible forestland to get to the hashpoint.

[edit] Expedition

It proved to all be farm land in the area, so it was off limits. My GPS was also reporting that the hashpoint was a mile away from the roadway, which didn't make sense at the time.

Later close examination of Google Maps revealed that I really was more than a mile from the hashpoint. It turns out that for some reason Google Maps is moving the hashpoint to the nearest road instead of leaving it off-road. This caused me to believe it was close to the roadway: Hence the confusion.

I'm pretty sure that in the past Google Maps has kept the hashpoint off=road, but it isn't doing that in this case. Regardless, the private land was preventing access.
