My wife and I are doing a self-supported cross country ride leaving in the middle of May from Baltimore. We'll be camping and relying in the kindness of strangers. I'm hoping for advice in our route. I'm aware of the AC routes and have chosen not to go in that direction.
Below is our tentative route from Frederick to Lexington. Let me if you have idea for better routes between these two places. I'm hoping that we'll be to manage the C&O trail with loaded down bikes. I know that there will be a detour around the Paw Paw Tunnel becuse of the dirt slide.
