Unlike the Warrior Trail, which stays on one ridge between watersheds, the Catawba Trail does cross Dunkard, Whiteley and other streams of necessity.

3. Mason and Dixon Historical Park - A monument at the point where the Indians insisted that Charles Mason and Jeremiah Dixon end their famous Mason-Dixon survey line in 1767. The line settled a boundary dispute between the Penn family of Pennsylvania and Lord Calvert of Maryland. The line started in Brunswick, New Jersey and proceeded west to the monument. A swath was cut 24 feet wide to mark the line over rough, often wooded, terrain and unbridged streams. To complete the survey required over two years and the labor of a crew of from 40 to 100 men. Park is 270 acres (half in PA and half in WV) it is owned jointly by Greene County, Pennsylvania and Monogalia County, West Virginia.
