This Greenway is intended primarily to be a one-mile wildlife and biodiversity corridor which connects to the Fairhill Natural Resource Area in Maryland. Part of the Greenway effort involved the reforestation of an existing field area which included the planting of native grasses. In 2010, 437 native specimen trees and 42 shrubs were planted.
These efforts will allow Township residents to enjoy the natural resources of the area through the careful evaluation and integration of recreational facilities, including walking and horseback-riding trails, an interpretive garden and educational signage.
There is a parking area located on Flint Hill Road and there is a hard surface trail leading from the parking lot south towards the forest.
Once entering the woods, the handicapped accessible loop trail will split to the left and feature an overlook of the creek, benches and two picnic tables. Once entering the woods the trail will connect to other existing trails through the area.
Funded in part through the DCNR Keystone Recreation, Park and Conservation Fund Grant Program, Mason-Dixon Greenway South is the first phase of an envisioned three-mile Mason-Dixon Greenway which will eventually connect to the White Clay Creek Preserve area in the northeastern portion of the Township.
