The Mason Dixon Trail

The Mason Dixon Trail

The Mason Dixon Trail is a 199 mile trail system that begins near Boiling Springs, PA and ends in Chadds Ford, PA. The western terminus is on Whiskey Spring Road, intersecting the Appalachian Trail and the eastern most section of the trail ends along the banks of the Brandywine River. Sky blue blazes mark the trail that travels on both dirt trails and roadways.

The trail system is broken into 10 sections, each section detailed on a separate waterproof paper map. I have created AllTrails versions of these maps based upon the directions on each paper map.

Below is a compilation of my walks on the Mason Dixon Trail. Note that from Whiskey Springs to Otter Creek, I completed the trail as out and back hikes, therefore the mileage is double.

The Mason Dixon Trail passes the shores of Lake Pinchot, and it is hard to walk by without a little dip in the water!
