Join the Friends of White Clay Creek Preserve and Wilmington Trail Club on National Trail Day, Saturday, June 6, 2015 as we celebrate the completion of the northern segment of the trail to the Mason-Dixon Tri-State Marker. This marker was set 250 years ago by Charles Mason and Jeremiah Dixon to settle the border dispute between Pennsylvania (and later Delaware) and Maryland. At 11 am there will be a dedication ceremony at the Tri-State Marker as hikers arrive carrying the flags from all three states: Pennsylvania, Maryland, and Delaware.

This is a rain or shine event, dress accordingly. Bring water and pack snacks and/or your lunch.

Limited transportation from the Carpenter Area of the White Clay Creek State Park, in Delaware, will be available for those wanting to attend the ceremony but unable to hike to it. Email friendsofwhiteclaycreek@gmail.com to reserve a space on the bus. Seating is limited– those making reservations will be guaranteed seating. It will be available to others if available
