Description

In Conshohocken, you'll use the Schuylkill Trail, cross the Schuylkill River, and continue on a bike path through Valley Forge National Historic Park. You might see Amish horse drawn carriages on the quiet roads near Bowmansville. Hills in this area are not severe, but the country certainly isn't flat. You'll cross the Susquehanna River between Columbia and Wrightville. In northern Maryland, there are a few short, steep descents; caution is advised because of the short sight distances.

Nearing Baltimore, two route options are available. The main route skirts the city to the west, using county roads that are often hilly. The Chesapeake Bay Alternate through Baltimore avoids most of the heavy traffic north of the city. Entering Washington, D.C. the route uses the Rock Creek and the Capital Crescent trails. In Virginia, for the most part you'll be riding on occasionally busy well-signed and well-surfaced network of county roads. The terrain is rolling, with a few steep hills.

ABOUT ADVENTURE CYCLING MAPS
Adventure Cycling maps are created by cyclists, for cyclists, and they are some of the best available for those in search of discovery and adventure in North America. The maps reflect the association's research as well as suggestions from thousands of cyclists who have explored the Adventure Cycling Route Network. Adventure Cycling develops the best cross-country, loop, coastal, and inland cycling routes available, with turn-by-turn directions, detailed navigational instructions for the tricky sections, and elevation profiles in the high country.

The maps are waterproof and designed to fit in a handlebar-bag window or jersey pocket. The maps provide information specifically for cyclists: the location of bike shops, sources for food and water, and listings of overnight accommodations including camping facilities, small hotels, and cyclists-only lodging.
