      MAPPER'S COMMENTS: Dave Linthicum
      The terrain is not unlike Patuxent River Park...no point is
      above 100 feet above sea level, and there are lots of flat, thick
      areas with a few nice open areas mixed in. The 1:7500 scale map field-
      checked about 9 years ago as an afterthought add-on (how's that for a
      disclaimer!) In the past few years some parts have been corrected, so
      that map quality is really irregular now! Much of the darker green
      ("thick vegetation", not "fight" has gotten much better (but which

      Rt. 4 Capital Beltway exit, head south/east on Rt. 4 for 8 miles
      (where you cross over U.S. Rt. 301), then 3 more miles south (into
      Anne Arundel County) on Rt. 4 to the "Plummer Lane" exit. Ignore
      all "Jug Bay Wetlands Sanctuary" signs and continue on Plummer Lane
      (which becomes Pindell Rd.) for 2.0 miles, making a hard right turn
      at 9 mailboxes. Take the paved "River Farm" road for a mile though
      the O' map terrain; after the road become dirt, look for parking in
      the field a bit before the house by Jug Bay. Start/finish at 38
      degrees, 46.49 minutes north, 76 degrees, 42.05 minutes west.
