Miles 0.00-5.2 W->E
 

Considering rerouting about 5 miles of the M-DT from Hickory Road through Tuckahoe Scout Camp and SGL 305 west of Dillsburg, PA. This is a long term project to relocate the western terminus of the M-DT off of roads. Approval would be required from the Boy Scouts, the Game Commission, some private property owners and 2 other government entities in order to make this a reality.
