We found an old article in the archives about the origin of the Mason-Dixon
Trail. There are a few things in the article that have changed, such as
one can no longer get a ride across the US40 bridge from the bridge patrol
when hiking the M-DT.
You have to take a cab, bus or a 'water shuttle' to get across the river. And
the article mentions that the US40 bridge crosses the Brandywine River when
it really crosses the Susquehanna River along the route of the M-DT.
Otherwise, the information within this article contains good historical
tidbits about the Mason-Dixon Trail. To access this article, click on the
