In Conshohocken, you'll use the Schuylkill Trail, cross the Schuylkill River, and continue on a bike path through Valley Forge National Historic Park. You might see Amish horse drawn carriages on the quiet roads near Bowmansville. Hills in this area are not severe, but the country certainly isn't flat. You'll cross the Susquehanna River between Columbia and Wrightville. In northern Maryland, there are a few short, steep descents; caution is advised because of the short sight distances. Nearing Baltimore, two route options are available. The main route skirts the city to the west, using county roads that are often hilly. The Chesapeake Bay Alternate through Baltimore avoids most of the heavy traffic north of the city. Entering Washington, D.C. the route uses the Rock Creek and the Capital Crescent trails. In Virginia, for the most part you'll be riding on occasionally busy well-signed and well-surfaced network of county roads. The terrain is rolling, with a few steep hills.
