Trail Building on the Mason Dixon Trail
Mason-Dixon Trail System Maintenance
We build and maintain 40 miles of the Mason-Dixon Trail System (M-DTS) in Pennsylvania from Route 372 to Wrightsville. The M-DTS is a 193 mile long trail from Chadds Ford, Delaware on the Brandywine River where it proceeds SE to Maryland. It crosses the Susquehanna River at Havre de Grace then follows the southwestern bank of the river to North of Wrightsville where it goes West to join the A.T. at Whiskey Springs. The Y.H.C. is a founding member of the M-DTS.
For more information on the York County part of the M-DTS go to mdts2.html
