23-Feb-2021 -- First visit in 10 years to this confluence, which is about 25 minutes east of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge just off US 301. I actually met the landowner who was driving by and pulled over to the side of the road just after I did. He hadn’t heard of the confluence project and was unaware that there was one on his property, less than a 100 yards south of the road [see note below]. He asked that I not walk to the actual spot, a request I obviously honored. He was amused to know that several previous visitors had already posted pics of the location on this website going back more than 20 years.

Coordinator's Note: This visit is classified incomplete because the GPS photo indicates a distance over 200 m (100 m is the limit) from the point.

From Annapolis, MD, take US-50 east to exit 46 (across the William Preston Lane Jr Memorial Bridge). Take US-301 east for 8.5 miles, and take a right onto SR-304 east (away from Centreville). Go 1.4 miles and turn right onto an unnamed road. Go 1.24 miles until the road ends in a T at Little Eagle Rd. To get to the confluence, turn left and walk 280 feet on Little Eagle Rd. Then, leave the road and walk due south 800 feet (remember to adjust if you're using a magnetic compass). Another way to get to the confluence would be to go 1.26 miles past the unnamed road on SR 304, and turn right onto Greenville Rd. Go 0.73 miles and turn right onto Little Eagle Rd. The best way to determine the confluence point is still to walk from the intersection of the unnamed road and Little Eagle Rd.
