    I have lived near Frederick my whole life, and had never been on most of these roads before I heard about these 'tours'.

    Click on "driving tours" and download the maps. I have done tours #1 and #5 so far and both were excellent. They were 70% paved and 30% dirt/gravel and very scenic.

    Enjoy!

    I ride them quite a bit since I bought the XT500. Fun way to blow a few hours when I don't have time for an all day ride.

    Missed this thread before. I did a little searching around and it looks like the current site is now http://www.ruralroadsfrederickmd.org/

    Good find, I've been on many of these roads before, but most of the time it was by accident. Good to see them laid out in routes..

    google maps this address

    Highfield-Cascade, MD 21719

    then there is Pen-Mar right near it, and High Rock (still viewing in google maps)

    take the road to High Rock, unbelievable views.

    the last time I was there when I lived in Maryland, there was a bunch of guys that were paragliding. Crazy to watch them run and jump right off the ridge!

    Yep, that's it. Click on the 'Driving tours' tab and you can download a PDF of each of their 5 routes.
