The Mason-Dixon Trail connects the Appalachian Trail with the Brandywine
Trail. This 199 mile long trail starts at Whiskey Springs on the
Appalachian Trail, in Cumberland County, PA and heads east towards the
Susquehanna River, passing through Gifford Pinchot State Park en route.
The trail then follows the west bank of the Susquehanna River south to
Havre de Grace, MD. Across the river, the M-DT continues east, passes
through Elk Neck State Forest, then on to Iron Hill Park, DE, north along
the Christina River and White Clay Creek to the White Clay Creek Preserve.
The trail then heads northeast to its eastern terminus at Chadds Ford, PA
on the banks of the Brandywine River.
The next Mason-Dixon Trail System Quarterly Hike and Meeting
is scheduled for Saturday, November 19, 2016. The hike will take place within
the Oakland Run, Lock 12 and Peavine Island area in PA. The meeting afterwards
will take place at the York Hiking Club Cabin. All are welcome to attend.
The members of the Mason-Dixon Trail System, Inc. hope that you enjoy your hikes on the trail. Volunteers from several states have constructed and are maintaining it. Our organization is aging and needs to mentor a new generation to run the organization. Unless we get some new active members we are in danger of losing the trail. Please consider helping. We need officers in the organization as well as trail maintainers. We meet four times a year at the convenience of the officers. Maintainers work at their own pace. For more
information, Contact Us.
We do need help.
