Hilly hike to Rock Run Mill and Mansion. Orange trail head straight ahead at end of driveway. Follow to Rock Run road. Left to Quaker Bottom Road. Cross Bridge and watch for Yellow trail on left. Follow to White trail, turn right. Follow to Red/Blue trail (Mason Dixon). Turn left and follow to the Mill (restrooms). Turn left on Rock Run road. Watch on right for Red (look for creek ford). Turn right off road, ford creek, and follow Red trail. Watch on left for crossover trail #4. Turn left, follow to blue trail at tree edge. Turn left and follow to Orange trail (Watch for Orange trail on right post top in ground) before the Blue trail goes into the woods.

Great signage throughout all the trails (all the blazing/signs with matching colors). As others have mentioned, there are couple spots where the intersection or entrance of a trail does not quite align with the dashed paths on AllTrails map, but as long as you know the color you need to follow isn't a problem. There were only 1 or 2 spots I encountered, but seemed to follow the AllTrails path for the majority of it. Suggest comparing with or giving park trail map a glance beforehand if unsure: https://dnr.maryland.gov/publiclands/Documents/SSP_map.pdf The brief segment of trail at the southern corner down to Lapidum Rd is rather worth it if you enjoy lots of curves and steeper trail (even a bench with an actual view not too far down from the main trail). There is also a short segment of Mason Dixon Trail that switchbacks up/down from the Ridge trail down to Stafford Rd (AllTrails shows a more straight path which isn't actually there)...also worth it if you like more rugged/rocky experience.

I was worried about the trail being tough to follow, but the reviews were wrong. Some good up and down, lovely little spot for lunch at a quaint campground right round the middle point. there was only one spot where the All Trails map was a little off but if you cross the creek and follow the blazes to the road, look left and head towards the house you see, you'll find it again with ease. Really well shaded and a couple of AWESOME trees!

Followed the trail to a T, didn't backtrack, and we ended at 9.3 miles and 1400+ feet of elevation. Trail isn't the easiest to follow, but suggest keeping Alltrails on standby to double check any turns/possible splits.

loved the scenery and difficulty of the trail, but keeping the right trail is definitely a task. we ended up with 7 miles instead of 4.

Hard to follow this trail, even using the map from this app. That said, this is a very pretty park with lots of trails and variety.

I wish I would of read the reviews before I took this trail. The reviews were right, it's impossible to follow. We also had to hike the road to find the orange trail back to the car. 4 miles turned into 7+ quickly. Was a nice hike but I also would not do this again until they figure out how to better mark the trails.

This trail was impossible to follow. No matter which way I went I couldn't seem to follow the trail. I eventually had to follow the roads before I could hook back up with Trail which resulted in an extra 2 miles being added to the hike. While it's a pretty area and there were some decent elevation on the trail parts that I was able to follow I wouldn't consider this trail again.

There are a number of hiking trails within the Susquehanna State Park you can hike so I recommend you print off the trail map from their web page. I hiked the Susquehanna Trail from Lapidum and then came back using the Land of Promise Trail. There are enough trail in the park to keep you busy for a day.
