Written Directions

From the intersection of Rt 601 and Rt 30, head north on Route 601 to Main St in Windber, PA.

Scenery

Rolling hills covered with forests, and often a stream or river beside the road on the northern half. A few old-school one-lane stone tunnels mixed in for good measure.

Road Quality

Smooth pavement, with plenty of sweepers and a number of twisties. Plenty of elevation changes, some requiring 3rd or 4th gear! Country 2-laneing at it's best.

Roadside Amenities

Not much in the middle or southern end at all! At the north end, Windber, & Paint blend into sizable town of Johnstown PA, where you have gas, dining & shopping options. Johnstown PA ( near the north end of this ride ) hosts the "THUNDER in the VALLEY" motorcycle rally in late June each year. Also, the city has the steepest INCLINED RAILWAY in the world ( 70 degrees steep! ), and you can take your motorcycle INSIDE the railway car up the 400ft tall hillside overtop the city for only $6!
