45 Bikes & Hikes: Torrey C. Brown (formerly Northern Central) and York County Heritage trails

Pennsylvania and Maryland Cross State Lines Torrey C. Brown (formerly Northern Central) and York County Heritage trails

Distance: 41 miles one way.

Don’t want to do an 82-mile round-trip ride? Beg a favor from a friend in Baltimore—buy him or her dinner in York, Pennsylvania, in exchange for shuttling your car (while you stay behind) down I-83 to just north of the Baltimore Beltway. Starting in York, the flat, crushed-gravel trail mostly follows the Gunpowder Falls River. Well shaded, it’s cool even on hot days, with places to stop and soak your feet. And ice-cream shops seem to crop up every ten miles or so.
Make it easier: If you have no Baltimore buddies, begin in Ashland, Maryland, and ride to Monkton and back for a total of 20 miles. For more information, visit the Bike Washington website.
