Mason-Dixon Trail Quarterly Hike / Meeting Details


Pinchot State Park, PA

The next quarterly hike and meeting of the Mason-Dixon Trail System will take place on Saturday, August 19, 2017 at 9:00 AM sharp within:
Gifford Pinchot State Park
2200 Rosstown RD
Lewisberry, PA 17339
This will be a work hike. We will initially meet at the Sunnyside Pavillion near the day use parking lot within the park. To get to the Sunnyside Pavillion turn from Alpine RD into the Conewago Day Use Area RD. Drive all the way to the end of the road at the lake's edge, turn right and proceed around the elongated parking area. When you get to the back of the elongated parking area you should see the Sunnyside Pavillion on your left. The M-DT goes behind the Pavillion as it migrates from the shared bike path onto the Alpine Trail. The plan is to have 3 teams blazing the M-DT within Pinchot State Park as follows:
Team 1- Blaze from the Squire Gratz RD western boundary of the park to PA177, a distance of 1.5 miles.

Team 2- Blaze from PA177 to the day use area, a distance of 3 miles.

Team 3- Blaze from the Alpine RD eastern park boundry of the park to the day use area, a distance of 2.6 miles.
Teams 1 and 3 have less blazing distance but have to drive further to stage vehicles at each end of their blazing area. The goal is to get all 3 areas blazed by around 12 noon. Paint and brushes will be provided. Wear clothing that you don't mind getting paint on. Also bring a set of loppers, a day pack, water, snacks, M-DT Map 2 and a lunch.

The noon lunch and 1:00 PM quarterly meeting will be held under the Sunnyside Picnic pavillion. If rain is predicted that day we will make a judgement call on the blazing effort a few days before this event. The meeting will still be on for 1:00 PM. All are welcome to attend.
