Saltwater, swamps and trees route. Repost of my reply in another thread.

This route is a rework of a route I did a couple of months ago 2up. This route will take you through Davidsonville, around to Galesville and Deale and down through North Beach. From there you'll continue down through Parran, Barstow and cross over to Patuxent. The route then loops north up to just south of Upper Marlboro. A short highway ride around Upper Marlboro and it returns to backroads that lead back into Davidsonville.

Mostly <55mph scenic backroads, moderately twistie with some straight stretches. The roads are well kept and in good overall condition. They are backroads, however, so there's always the possibility of gravel, leaves, sand, wildlife, etc.

Total distance will probably be somewhere around 100 miles, give or take. Nice views of forrests, shorelines overlooking the Chesapeake, marsh areas, etc.


-424 south to Davidsonville and 214.
-Left on 214 East to 468.
-Right on 468 to 256.

-Left on 2/4 to 231.

-Continue on 231, even crossing past hwy 5.
-Right on Shop Rd.
-Cross straight over hwy 5 again, road turns to Bryantown Rd.
-Byantown to Mudd Rd.
-Left on Mudd Rd.
-Right on Poplar Hill Rd.
-Poplar Hill becomes Croom Rd (382).

-382 to 301.
-Right on 301 to Upper Marlboro and hwy 4.
-East on hwy 4 to 408.
-408 runs into 2.
-Continue on 2 around Harwood to Birdsville Rd.

Thanks for posting that route! I rode the route solo today and had a great time. The first half of the route has some nice coastal scenery and tight windy roads. It was hard to get going at a good pace as I keep running into a lot of cars; I was out during rush hour, if there is such a thing in those parts.

Once you get past the North Beach area onto 2/4 the roads really open up but the scenery drops a bit but is still nice country farm land instead of the coastal scenery. Be careful with the speed. Iím a beginner and if a few people didnít clue me in I would have hit a speed trap or two, all in all I think I past 6 speed traps on the route. After talking to a few people I guess those folks down there are cracking down on the fast movers (Anne Arundel, St. Maryís, and Calvert area).

Somehow I missed something somewhere when I was on Poplar Hill Rd. towards the end of the ride and somehow ended up back where Rt. 231 crossed under Rt. 5, so I just hoped on Rt. 5 then Rt. 301 since I live in Bowie. Round trip from Bowie was about 120 miles with my little detour which probably made up for that last little bit of the ride that I cut off. I would recommend this route to anybody that is south or southwest of the city looking for a decent ride without going far.
