Took this ride on a Sunday in early December through several historic communities northwest of Washington DC. Mostly on older but well-maintained country roads, this route meanders through Virginia hunt country, then touches many Civil War-era historical sites, including the Harpers Ferry and Antietam Battlefield parks. Though bare in the winter, the trees along the route, particularly on the stretch along River Road on the approach to Shepherdstown, promise inviting shade in the spring/summer and color changes for the fall. Stopping for lunch at one of the many restaurants in Shepherdstown, the trip took around 5 hours, but easily could be a daylong adventure if you stop to explore some of the many interesting sites along the way.
