Written Directions

To start this route you need to get yourself to La Porte, Indiana. From there you need to:

1) Travel west on Hwy 2 from US 35 (La Porte, IN).
2) Turn North on south 500 West at the Pinola Mart gas station.
3) Turn West (left) on "Small" Road. Small Rd will turn into Goldring Road. (Goldring Road is often vandalized to read GoldWing Road.)

Suggest you use the online map above and zoom in and out till you get your bearings and figure out the best way for you to get there.

Scenery

Scenery is limited to the wooded area the road was carved through, along with some rural residential areas.

Road Quality

I call this road the "Dragon" of Northwest Indiana. It's the twistiest road in Northwest Indiana, and is a far cry comparing it to Deal's Gap. HOWEVER, this is relative to our portion of the state. It's a short run (3.5 mi.) but is worth every minute! Watch out for some gravel in corners. Not many elevation changes. Definitely a hidden road and only known to locals... until now. :-)

Roadside Amenities

Country road... nothing to offer other than a great hidden road.

For a Nw Indiana road, I thought it was very enjoyable. Finding the northern entrance was a little hard. It has about 6 back to back S turns with maybe another 5 curves in it, which is a lot for this short section of road. DO NOT go there expecting to tear down this road on a sport bike. This is a road for safe and slow riding. I will go back. Also the roads in the area have some nice rolling hills, horse pasture and generally slightly better than normal farm country scenery for Nw Indiana.

At the north end of this route jog west to Wosniak Rd and follow it down to HWY6. Wasniak is a bit twisty with lots of tree covered section and back road farm land. Then take 6 back to 35 and north back to La Porte for a nice loop. Wosniak is nice, new pavement where as Goldring is a bit rough but not bad. Be prepared for some down shifting and don't go too fast. Note the neat old mansions just outside of La Porte. This a great route!

I would make this ride longer by starting in LaPorte on lake shore drive. Nice lake views and some curvy road through the parks . The road turns into greenleaf and dumps you onto small road.

If you are a true rider, this road is a BIG let down. Don't even put it in the same breath as the Dragon. Its like riding through a subdivision for a couple miles. Don't even bother going out of your way for this.

Took this road as part of a larger trip. Short road but, very beautiful tree lined street. Easy turns to make, nothing too crazy.

There are some other nice roads in the area, this one is pretty short. We swung by here as part of a lager trip to the Indian Casino (FourWinds) in New Buffalo Michigan.
