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.

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

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.

https://maps.google.com/maps?f=d&hl=en&geocode=8539760441136834882,39.547920,-76.742462&saddr=39.604366,-76.835804&daddr=Blackrock+Rd/[email protected],+-76.742462&mra=dme&mrsp=0&sz=13&sll=39.596297,-76.835804&sspn=0.071031,0.136642&ie=UTF8&ll=39.571293,-76.787224&spn=0.127029,0.219727&z=12&output=classic&dg=brw


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

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.

There are twists, turns and good straight-aways on this route. The roads are all asphalt which are fairly well maintained.

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.

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.

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.

Green Turtle in Crofton to Calypso Bay in Deale to Thursdays Steak and Crabhouse in Galesville to Mike's Crab House Annapolis to Crofton Go-Cart Raceway
71.5 Miles
This route starts and ends in Crofton taking mainly back roads. The Greene Turtle has a large parking lot to meet at and there is a Starbucks there for morning coffee. You then take the backroads with lots of curves down to Deale. You can stop for a break in the parking lot of Calypso Bay or Thursday's and even get a bite to eat before headed back towards Crofton. If you choose you can stop at Mike's Crab house for a drink before headed to the Go Cart Raceway to race your friends. This is my favorite drive in Maryland.

Sorry about all of the waypoints but when I dragged the points on the map they would disappear and it kept putting me on the highway.

I always like the road out of Frederick, MD over South Mountain (always stop for pictures of the church and usually walk up to the George Washington Monument - great view from the top) and then down into Sharpsburg. The route names escape me, but I've made that drive a dozen or so times over the last 20 years or so.

can agree with Rt 17, goes right by my house and is one of the most fun roads to drive on!
