I made up a preliminary route and drove it today. Took me 1 and a half hours, 62 miles. This was with us returning to Brighton Dam, but I think I will have us ending at a different location. I went by Brighton Dam and I noticed that their parking lot is not very big and it had a sign that said no loitering. So hopefully we won't have any problems unless a lot of people show up, like 30 cars.

I will type up the preliminary route and post it here soon. When I do, let me know what you guys think and what changes should be made.

Can someone tell me how to post the Word file on the forum for people to download?

Here is the route:

h Coming out of the park turn right onto Brighton Dam Road
h Go 1.7 miles turn left onto Highland Road
h Go 1.0 mile turn left onto Triadelphia Mill Road (very twisty)
h At 1.7 miles there will be a 90 degree bend to the right, very shortly after the bend turn left back onto Triadelphia Mill Road (very twisty)
h At 2.1 miles there will be another 90 degree bend to the right, at that point the road turns into Triadelphia Road
h At 3.4 miles you will encounter a traffic circle, stay straight, go .4 miles and turn left back onto Triadelphia Road
h Go 4.0 miles turn right onto Route 144
h Go 2.5 miles turn right onto Route 40
h Go 3.6 miles turn right onto Rogers Ave.
h At .4 miles Rogers Ave. takes a right turn, dont take it, keep straight onto Court House Drive
h Go .2 miles turn right onto Ellicott Mills Drive
h Go .4 miles turn left onto Main Street (Old Ellicott City, lots of traffic and people, go slow)
h Go .3 miles turn right onto Mulligans Hill Lane
h Go a few hundred feet turn right onto St. Paul Street
h Go .1 mile turn left onto College Ave. (nicknamed Seven Hills, you will see why, lots of people have died on this road)
h Go 2.0 miles turn left onto Bonnie Branch Road
h Go .6 miles turn left onto Ilchester Road (very haunted area)
h Go .2 miles stay left onto River Road (notice the factory on the left, caught fire a month ago)
h Go .2 miles turn right onto Thistle Road
h Go 1.0 mile turn right onto Route 144
h Go 2.2 miles turn right onto 695 South
h Get onto Route 95 South
h Go 10.0 miles, take Route 32 West
h Go 7.1 miles, take Route 108 West towards Olney (left)
h Go 6.3 miles turn right onto Route 650 North
h Go 3.3 miles turn right onto Brighton Dam Road
h Go 1.0 mile turn right into the park
