      Remember this is a Annapolis Club walk. Car poll will leave Tam Joines at
      8:00 AM. Lunch is at a Great Café with lots of local color and unbeatable
      Fried Flounder sandwiches.

      Description:

      Daily, dawn to dusk. The ACLT is in a scenic, rustic area. The trail is on
      natural surfaces, including steep hills. Wet weather will make the trail
      more difficult. Featured is a boardwalk through a swamp and several
      footbridges over small streams. You will also visit the American Chestnut
      tree from which the property takes its name, as well as an old family
      cemetery. The Start Box is located on the porch of the small, wooden
      building to the right front of the parking area. Also, please sign the
      Visitor's Log at the ACLT main trail entrance to promote continued funding
      for the Land Trust. There are no restrooms and no water at the start/finish
      or along the trail. There is a working privy along the trail. It is highly
      recommended that you stop for water and restrooms at one of the
      establishments along Route 4 in Prince Frederick.
