Description

A short trail, but one of the smoothest in the park. It heads through beautiful trees. I have heard that there are timber rattlers along the trail, so keep an eye out!

Chestnut can be accessed near the Nature Center or at the intersection of Azalea Trail and Big Oak Trail. It traverses along the northwest side of Bays Mountain.
