Trail shared by Mark Berry

A mostly flat, but rooty singletrack trail that connects Fair Hill and White Clay Creek State Park.

Mark Berry

Features River/Creek

Family Friendly Almost entirely flat through the woods.

Description

This is used as a section of the long-distance Mason Dixon Trail. The trail is well marked with blue paint on the trees. It is very flat and follows a creek most of the time.

The trail can be wet after rainy periods. It has lots of sharp cutbacks and rooty sections. When you hit the highway bridge, hike under it, if possible. There can be lots of poison ivy and it can get overgrown at times.

Walked from Church Rd to Elkton Road. Snowy day. Trail is in good shape. It is a little muddy. Moderate traffic.
