Pennsylvania Route 130 + ADD NEW ROUTE
- Trip Toolbox
This route can be taken off of Route 30 just past Greensburg (if heading east) just before Greensburg (if heading west). However, the fun doesn't start until after Route 982. Route 981 and 982 (roads that run parallel to 130) can both be taken off of Route 30 as well in Lawson Heights, PA.
Scenery is a solid 3. It's large hills and farmland abound until you delve down into the thick woods. The woods are a solid 5 in the autumn (as in the video provided) and then back out to the hills and farmland.
The road is grooved in the first 1/2 coming from Greensburg after Route 982 in such a way that you will feel a slight wandering of your front and/or rear tires. It's sort of a surreal feeling, but it's never had any effect on my turn ins or given me much discomfort. Other than that the pavement is a solid 3 to 3.5 as it was tar and chipped in 2012.
None. Get whatever you need from Greensburg, Latrobe, Lawson Heights or any other road on US 30. There's no landmarks, either.
This is a nice little road that's close enough to cities that you don't have to ride too far to get to this one. The hills and twisties make it fun, it's no monster, but a nice ride that I recommend. While you're at it head down 381 south into Ohiopyle for some more twisty goodness.
