Spring Tour to Seneca Rocks Park, West Virginia
May 20, 2017
Come join us for a scenic drive through the hills of Maryland, Virginia, and West Virginia!
The tour starts at the Park and Ride parking lot south of Frederick, Maryland just off of Route 340/15 and Mt. Zion Road. This drive is designed for those who like scenic side roads with lots of twists and turns! We will be driving through Charles Town, WV, pass by Summit Point Raceway, then head south to Stephen’s City, WV. From there we take some more back roads to Wardensville WV, driving on the largely unused, but very scenic Old Route 55 to Moorefield West Virginia, and then down to Seneca Rocks Park. The last 15 miles we will pass through a beautiful scenic valley road with streams and mountain peaks on both sides.
There are several places to stop and take in the scenery, either on the way down, or the way back. Summit Point Raceway would be fun for those who want to see it, if they’ve never been, Seneca Rocks has a nice visitors center, and we can stop and walk around a bit if you wish. We will all decide before we leave about where we want to make our stops. One goal is to stick together so we don’t lose anyone.
We’ll head back up to Moorefield, WV, where we’ll lunch at the Blues Smoke Pit, a fun BBQ place with good food. Plan on getting home later in the afternoon.
We’ll meet at 7:00 am and leave at 7:30 am.
