    Great roads to drive in Maryland

    I wanted to post up some scenic fun curvy driver's roads that I know of. If you know a route, post up.

    I could use some help and this will be a work in progress so if you have an idea about how to put the information out, post up. I was thinking about posting the road name, the route length, and a brief description of the road. If someone could show me how to link a map it would be even better.

    I'm just attaching a map for the waypoints since it won't let me attach a gpx file for downloading to your gps.

    I'm going to list the
    County
    Route/Road Name
    Length of Road
    Description of Road
    Link to map if available:

    Baltimore County North
    State Route 45 York Road Maryland line to Cockeysville
    17 miles long
    Good road with some curves. A few areas to pull off to wait for other cars. A little crowded once your south of the Hunt Valley area and there is stop and you will hit red lights closer to town. Take I-83N to Shawan Road exit, go right and turn left onto York Road N. It will be a nice drive up to the PA line.

    Baltimore County
    Spooks Hill Rd (Scenic drive to get from York Road to Falls Road around Pretty Boy Reservoir
    11 miles
    There is a 5 mile long section on Spooks Hill Road that is very curvy. There are no lines, it's similar to the road that cuts through Loch Raven. Really fun to drive if there is no traffic, but it's a great way to cut over to Falls Rd and scenic.

    Baltimore / Carrol County
    State Route 25 Falls Road Baltimore (695) to Alesia
    22 miles long
    2 lane road with a some curves and hills through wooded areas.

    https://maps.google.com/maps?f=d&hl=...classic&dg=brw


    Baltimore / Carrol County
    State Route 88 Blackrock Road (located right off of Falls Road above)
    8 miles long
    This drive is short but nice to hit up if your already on Falls Road. It's got small hills, sweeping turns and a few small semi - twisty bits.

    The roads I linked to above can all be linked together for a nice 1.5 hour drive.

    RT 83 - RT 95 North Cockeysville to Joppatown around Loch Raven
    35 miles

    For those that might visit Capital Raceway in Crofton, MD there is a local quick route we used to do here that begins just a few minutes from the track. If you are planning on going to the track early on a Saturday morning then it's still empty if you meet up for coffee first and get on the route by 730am.

    Anne Arundel County
    Loop from Rt 3 South to Rt 450
    19 Miles

    Crownsville to North Beach on back roads
    39 miles
    A bunch of different roads linked together to get down to North Beach. Quite a few stop signs, but it's a nice drive.

    Linthicum to Hanover right next to BWI
    5 miles
    This is a short strech of road, but if your in the area it's easily accessible off of Rt. 100 and the road is fun to drive.

    Frederick County / Harford County
    Figure 8 loop around Frederick
    65 miles
    There are twists, turns and good straight-aways on this route. The roads are all asphalt which are fairly well maintained.

    Frederick County
    Rt 17
    30 miles
    This route can be linked to the route above for a really good drive. Either direction traveled will be satisfying. This scenic route will take you through several small towns ( One of these small towns is Burkittsville, MD - home of 'the Blair Witch) providing where you can stop for food or gas. The road has sweeping turns and straightaways as well as limited stop signs and various speed limits allow for a fun drive. Link it to Route 77 for a longer drive.

    Howard County
    Ellicott City Loop
    10.2 miles
    Great road to drive and there are great places to get breakfast or lunch downtown. The circuit passes through Old Town Ellicott City and along a river with hills on all sides. There are quite a few twists and turns on this route including 2 blind 90 degree turns and 1 blind 270 degree turn. Nice straight away as well.

    Here is a good one if everyone wants to meet for coffee/breakfast early on Saturday morning and then head to Hooters in Towson for lunch.

    Baltimore County North
    Friendly Farm Restaurant to Hooters in Towson via Foreston Rd, Beckleysville Rd, Spooks Hill Rd, Pretty Boy Dam Rd, MD-45 S, MD-45 S, MD-145 E, Manor Rd, Loch Raven Dr.

    Edit: I had a post here about a dirt road but found out the land is owned by Bowie State University so I' took the post down. I thought it was state owned forest access road but it's not. So if you're looking for dirt roads, head to Virginia or PA. Here is an easy way to find open dirt roads. For a WRX on Viriginia forest roads would look for level 4 or 5 roads. 3's and 2's are more for 4wd suv's and trucks.

    It's not very long.. but I like Hilton parkway. I drive it on my commute to work everyday and the 3 or 4 turns paired with the straight aways give me a good release.

    This is a great thread that I'm book marking!

    On a different note, we should start a CWP club.

    Glad you like it. Post any roads you can think of. Tab and I are going to check out some roads this weekend. We need to make it to a meet and greet soon.
