Prior to the start of this years Roburrito’s Gut Run Challenge, we had the chance to present Roxanne and Dave Strine of the Mason Dixon Trail System with a donation of $1,500. The donation will be used to cover the cost of bridge repairs on a portion of the trail that runs through the Otter Creek campground.
Keep reading to learn a little more about this hidden gem of a trail system that runs through York County…
- The trail is marked with a single BLUE blaze.
- The trail is about 200 miles from end to end, depending on which GPS you’re using.
- The Western terminus is in Winky Springs, PA. The Mason Dixon meets the Appalachian Trail at this point.
- The Eastern terminus is found in Chadds Ford, PA.
- Between the two ends, the trail spends about 52 miles in Maryland, and about 20 miles in Delaware.
- You can find a stretch of the Mason Dixon meandering through Pinchot State park on the east side of the lake.
- Speaking of parks, the Mason Dixon passes through a number of York County parks, including High Point, Klines Run, Native Lands, Apollo, and the Urey Overlook.
- The trail features every terrain you can think of, from flat, easy road running (there are some amazing river views near Accomac) to some of the most technical trail (just south of Shank’s Mare) that PA has to offer.
