TIME: 8:30am - 11:30am (prompt start, estimated end)
MILEAGE: 7-8 miles


DESCRIPTION: (Wear appropriate clothing & bring water! Below are some special instructions: what to bring, relative difficulties, interesting features, & carpooling directions.)

This hike will be in this usually secluded nearby forest.  Enjoy the native pine trees, sweet gum trees, mountain laurel, azaleas, ferns, grasses, and stunning mushrooms. Expect a few small water crossings and some wet ground areas.  A few short hills, but mostly flat.  Some surfaces have been worn by erosion.  About 60% trail and 40% dirt roads.  No paved roads even crossed.  Most of the hike will follow the Mason Dixon Trail.

This is a COVID-19 compliant hike so unfortunately only 10 hikers (including the leader) will be able to attend.  Please bring your mask, hand sanitizer, a pen to sign the hike release form, and food to eat while we’re hiking.  There will be no lunch stop.

Please RSVP no earlier than Thursday, September 24 to Joan Burke at .

LOCATION NOTES:

This is one of the tracts of the State FOREST, not the State PARK!  Elk Neck State Forest and Elk Neck State Park are very often confused. The State Forest’s area is much larger, with the main tract running all the way between Elkton and North East, MD. It has a climbable wooden lookout tower. The State Park is past the Forest and further from Delaware.  At its farthest section, it has a white lighthouse on a 120 foot bluff, overlooking the Chesapeake Bay.
