White Clay Creek State Park was created in 1968 when the state purchased 24 acres of land. The park has since grown to almost 2,500 scenic acres in the continuing effort to preserve and protect the natural resources of the valley. The park has more than 40 miles of trails, including 24 miles for shared uses.
Of the many activities available at the park, hiking is one of the most popular. Twenty miles of trails lead explorers to scenic vistas overlooking lush valleys and impressive rock outcrops. Explore the Millstone Trail where grindstones were once quarried from the exposed boulders or get an active workout on the Lifecourse Fitness Trail.
Hikers can also stroll though history at White Clay Creek. The Logger's Trail chronicles the history of lumbering in the area while the Twin Valley Trail leads hikers to the Arc Corner Monument, which marks one end of the curved boundary between Pennsylvania and Delaware. Traveling through rolling farm land and mature stands of beech and oak, Possum Hill hikers will discover the monument marking the point used by the famous survey team to establish the beginning of the Mason-Dixon Line.
