On the north west corner of Baltimore, off of I-695 (exit 23) you'll find State Route 25 or what's also known as Falls Road. Head north on 25/Falls Road and enjoy the great scenery. After about 18 miles, you'll want to turn right on Beckleysville Road and go through the Prettyboy Watershed Reservoir which is a thrill to ride through. There are several side roads you can take in the watershed that are beautiful. Look for the Prettyboy Dam Rd. for a spectacular view of the Prettyboy Dam (nice nature trail there). When you're done running around in Prettyboy, get back on Beckleysville Road and head east all the way over to Rt 45/York Road. Take Rt 45 south to Cockeysville at which point you will have made a 47 mile loop.
Beautiful scenery, in the fall the colors are magnificent. Take your camera, wildlife abounds in Prettyboy Reservoir.
