Renovo to Kettle Creek Loop + ADD NEW ROUTE
- Trip Toolbox
If you start in Renovo, PA...head west for 1 mile until you hit Rt 144 North...Follow this for 15 amazing miles then turn left onto Kettle Creek Road and follow that south for 12-15 miles...(there is a 1/2 mile where the road has a light gravel coating, but it clears. When you hit Rt 120 make a left and follow this 6 miles back to Renovo.
These roads have it all, incredible natural scenery of the Pennsylvania wilds, with old PA Rail Road relics dotting the landscape....rivers, dams, mountains...amazing roads.
The roads keep you interested, wide variety of scenic straights, with sweepers and switchbacks...ON 120 you will ride with a 70-100 foot Granite cliff to your right and picturesque Railway following the curves in the river below you to the right....Rt 144, its a flawless piece of twisting tarmac that ascends and descends the mountains in a series of tight sweepers and fun switchbacks while you are sheltered by mountains on all sides. No stop signs, no intersections.....just ride.
Running through what seems like 10 state parks, you have natural amenities...fishing streams, camp grounds, Kayaking, horseback riding, hiking... you name it....Cute little shops and a diner in Renovo.
There are many roads in this area that are worth exploring...144, 44, 6 and 120. The northern leg of both 144 and 44 about 10 miles south of rt 6 are both heavily patched, but there was no gravel and the roads were still really fun.
