Written Directions

From Elkton, MD: go south on landing lane, turn right at the stop sign on old field point road. In about a mile, turn right on Johns Chapel Rd to transfer to Old Elk Neck Road. Take left (south) on Old Elk Neck Rd for a few miles. Look for an intersection with McKinney Town Rd, turn right on McKinney Town. The road will dead end at Turkey Point Rd. Turn left on Turkey Point which takes you all the way to the light house.

Scenery

Twisty roads through Elk Neck Woods and a few hills that break out of the trees and you can see the bay.

Drive Enjoyment

A bit choppy in some places, but nothing to be concerned with unless you are trying to drag a knee.

Tourism Opportunities

At the end of the route you'll find Elk Neck State Park. From their website (http://www.dnr.state.md.us/publiclands/central/elkneck.asp) "Elk Neck is your year-round, travel destination to connect with the vast landscapes and waters of the Chesapeake Bay. The park boasts 2,188 acres of sandy beaches, marshlands, and heavily wooded bluffs overlooking the North East River, the Elk River and the Chesapeake Bay. As a result, there are several journeys you can take while in the park." Other than that, just a few small gas stations and quickie marts along the way.

Nice ride. If you are coming from DC or Baltimore be prepared to pay 2 tolls $4 for the tunnel going and coming and $8 for another just going. The parking lot for the lighthouse is gravel and it's a .80 mile hike to the lighthouse.
