The Lower Susquehanna River Tour in Maryland – A Great Motorcycle Ride – Maryland Scenic Byway

Scenic Byway Sign

If you live in Delaware or eastern Maryland than you should try this route. The Lower Susquehanna River Tour is marked clearly as all Maryland state scenic byways are. It runs from Perryville, MD through Port Deposit, Maryland , across the Conowingo Dam to Havre de Grace, Maryland. Diana and I had the perfect day last Sunday riding up and down the Susquehanna on our motorcycles, just the two of us. We put on 130 miles round trip from our house, took some nice pictures and had a great lunch. A good ice cream too!

Two Harleys On The River

The Susquehanna River is the largest non-navigable river in the United States. It pours 19 million gallons of fresh water into the Chesapeake Bay every minute. At some points it is 1 mile wide. At the end of the river where it meets the Chesapeake Bay you have Perryville, MD on one side of the river and Havre de Grace, MD on the opposite side.

The scenic byway starts at the very beginning of Frenchtown Road in Perryville. From there you merge with Rt 222 and enter into Port Deposit, Maryland. We stopped in Port Deposit to take some pictures and had an ice cream. We found an ice cream shop called Shiver Me Timbers which had a tropical island pirate theme going on. The bananna split was very good!
