How To Get Here From Washington D.C.

Driving

If you drive, you can come up the route 270 spur from Washington D.C to Frederic, or along route 70 from Baltimore.

The time to get from Dulles International Airport to Frederick is about 40 minutes. After leaving the airport on its access road there are two ways to get here from Dulles. One is to go to the Washington Beltway and then north on route 270 (an hour). The other is to take route 28 north, route 7 east, route 15 north and then route 340 (about 40 minutes). When you reach Frederick, you turn north onto route 15 and follow the instructions below.
