Attractions along this route will provide both historical interest opportunities and scenic natural beauty. The route begins in Historic Port Tobacco and winds north on Rose Hill Road past the Thomas Stone National Historic Site, home of one of Maryland's four signers of the Declaration of Independence. A left on Route 225 to Myrtle Grove Wildlife Management Area and a left on Route 224 also offers Revolutionary War history at Smallwood State Park where daily bald eagle sightings are almost a sure bet as Charles County is home to the state's second largest bald eagle population. Purse State Park also offers fossil hunting opportunities. Continue your journey with a left on Route 6. Turn left on Hancock Run Road, then right on Adams Willet, and right on Liverpool Point Road. Cross Route 6 which becomes Baptist Church Road and travel past Christ Church Durham Parish, circa 1692. Turn left on Route 425. Route 425 will again meet with Route 6. Take a right on Route 6 and follow back to the Port Tobacco Courthouse, enjoying a nice side trip on Mill Swamp Road and Blossom Point Road.
