Directions: Our address is 247 Chestnut Ferry Road in Camden. From Walmart in Camden head north on Springdale Drive, toward the race track. Chestnut Ferry Road (a dirt road) crosses over Springdale drive at the bend. Turn left onto Chestnut Ferry road and continue down until you see our pinecone logo sign. Our driveway is the last on the left. After proceeding through our gate, do not stop in the maintenance lot. Continue down our long driveway, past the right turn, and into the parking area. You will see our green and tan restroom building near the trailhead. If you are arriving in a bus, the bus parking is just beyond the fire hydrant on the left side of the driveway.
