Mid-Atlantic Cruise: York Road

Since we've got folks coming from both sides of the beltway, how about we meet up at the Towson Hooters at 9:30am and drive up together?

Darren and I made the drive today.

Some notes (I'll update the 1st post later)...

1. We'll stop at Hunt Valley Town Center in the middle for a pit stop.
2. Loch Raven Dr is closed in sections every weekend, so I'll adjust the route to take us on a proper detour.

The enforcement has been pretty lax up there recently, at least in my experience. You've also can take it to Blue Ridge, which is a bit of a hike, but a great drive with almost no enforcement.


As for this drive, I'm going to try and make it. It's a bit of a hike, but we will see how busy I am.

Well, regardless of LEO presence, it's just not a good place to speed. Lots of scenic overlooks and tourists.

The guys from Top Gear went on Blue Ridge, but they said it was boring because the speed limit was 35. They also went to Capitol Raceway in that same episode. I believe they were here this past fall.

Agreed. A 40mph cruise is pretty safe, but also doesn't feel like you're crawling because of the nature of the road. The far southern section is a lot better for drives, but unfortunately a lot farther away.

BR's speed limits range from 35-55mph, depending on where you're at. The section near the end of skyline is 50mph IIRC.

Yeah, it's fairly slow. But the whole point of Skyline is a leisurely, scenic cruise for everyone.

It's really awesome! Did not disappoint! And even taking the detour and only driving part of Loch Raven Dr, it really is an epic joy to drive.

I'll update the map tonight.

Blueridge is 45. And it's actually fun when you drive faster! ;-)
