Mason-Dixon Trail “Tortoise Style”

Several Delaware chapter senior hikers decided to hike the historic MDT in small sections after discovering it was only 201 miles not 2000+ miles like the Appalachian trail. We began in March 2021 and go at our own pace (approximately 2.5 mph); we stop to smell the roses, take pictures and enjoy a good meal and wine after hike!

Hike Schedule:

March 7-8, 2022 Map 9 section . This is a day trip beginning in White Clay Creek State Park. Plan on 4-5 miles with some road walking.

May 23-26, 2022 Map 1 and 2 we will section hike for 3 days and stay at Gifford Pinchot State Park. Several members have already made reservations for cabin and campsites.
