Charly17201--Depends on the OPs priorities . . . it's about an additional 70 miles to head west from Trenton to York then down to Baltimore vs. taking the more direct route through Philly to Baltimore. Pretty significant, yes, but what's the value of a more scenic ride to York plus the rail trail? The ride from Philly to B'more is a drag if you're paralleling Rt 40. I personally like the alternative of heading down to the Cape May-Lewes ferry then across to the Bay Bridge (with a ride across it to Annapolis). It's the same mileage addition but light traffic. No matter how you slice it the ride from B'more to DC or from Annapolis to DC is a pain. Agree that it's a question of time constraints . . . adds an extra day.

Chiroptile--Sorry, don't know about camping options, I tend to credit card tour unless it's a quick weekend trip. Probably a bit of a challenge on the Delaware & Raritan Canal trail though.
