Maryland may not be the largest state, but riders can actually section it off into five different regions. The eastern shore area is flat and has a lot of farmlands, but it also has beach access and nice, peaceful rides. The capital area gives you cultural and historical sites to stop and see. The central region has more hills and access to Chesapeake Bay as well as some urban centers like Baltimore. The southern area includes more historic sites as well as many nature preserves that are quite pristine. And the western portion of the state gives you mountains and beautiful lake scenes. You might want to decide between sections before you choose a route or travel between them as you please. Here are some of the best routes within the state.
