Info on NER GPX Files Content
This is a great day on a bike. Highlights include Antietam National Battlefield (map), Harper’s Ferry Road, Harper’s Ferry, Old WV Route 55, S Mill Creek Rd, Smokehole Rd, Seneca Rocks, and WV 250.
Before proceeding with this route, we suggest starting with our 9.2 mile Antietam Battlefield Tour ride. This battlefield is every bit the equal of Gettysburg. The ride through the park is beautiful and a huge contrast to what happened here. Budget a few hours for this remarkable site.
Once done at Antietam, follow beautiful Harper’s Ferry Road along the Potomac River to Harper’s Ferry (map).
Just after you cross the West Virginia State Line, stop for lunch at the Kac-Ka-Pon Restaurant in Wardensville, WV. The restaurant is known for its pie! If too early, try lunch at the Grove Cafe & Bakery or Family Traditions in Petersburg, WV.
Enjoy the WV twisty roads and scenery all the way to the end in Elkins, WV.
