This 265 mile ride visits some of the best roads between West Virginia and Gettysburg, Highlights include Route 219, Route 50, Bear Hill Road, PA Route 26, PA 484, PA 522, PA 30.

Ride Map


Begin by riding Route 219 north and east. The Montrose to Thomas stretch is one of my favorites with great curves and scenery.

Route 219


Turn north on Route 90 and ride to U.S. Route 50 in Gormania. Turn east and ride Route 50 through some great curves with nice scenery to Romney.

U.S. Route 50


Turn north and ride Route 28 and Route Ride 1 to the North Branch Potomac River. Cross into Maryland and ride Bear Hill Road and then Town Creek Road north along Green Ridge State Forest to Flintstone. Stop for lunch at the The Girls R Cookin' (review).

Bear Hill Road/Town Creek Road



Ride north on Black Valley Road into Pennsylvania. Bear right onto Chaneysville Road and follow it north to Buchanan State Forest. Take Miller Corner Road (some dirt) east to PA Route 26. Ride PA 26 (you will love it!) south to Route 484. Follow Route 484 east all the way to Route 655 in Needmore.

Ride Route 655 north to U.S. 522, turn right, and follow 522 north to PA Route 30. Turn east on Route 30 and stop at the Tuscarora Summit View on the right next to Mountain House Grill. Continue east on route 30 all the way to Gettysburg.

Gettysburg is a very moving place. Consider doing the driving tour.
