Extended Short Route — 18 Miles

This Tour de Cookie route is roughly 18 miles and offers a greater challenge for older children and adults seeking an alternative to the short route. Beginning and ending on the Carl Henn Millennium Trail, this course uses additional shared-use paths, sidewalks, residential streets, and the Rock Creek Trail to create a scenic loop through the greater Rockville area. Expect some mild to moderate hills and be sure to use caution at busy road crossings. 

Please note that you may see this route referred to as our 19 mile route while registering. It is the SAME route. We made some great improvements that changed the distance a bit. Don’t be confused!
