Written Directions

This route is really easy to find and follow. Just set to Williamsport, PA and get on Route 87 heading northeast and all the way to Mehoopany, PA.

Scenery

Lots of beautiful scenery as the road generally follows the bed of the Loyalsock creek ... resulting in a road with great scenery and plenty of sweepers. A mix of riding next to shear rock walls, picturesque streams with some rolling hillside farmland mixed-in for good measure.

Road Quality

It provides the perfect balance of sweepers, slightly tight corners and well placed open spaces for passing when needed. Very light traffic, almost no intersections. Nice road!

Roadside Amenities

This isn't a road for stopping - its a road made for riding!.

I have taken this route several times and it always pleases me. Not much traffic at all, and plenty of opertunities for passing. Great run on those hot days because of all the shade, and you can feel the cool air from the creek.

Took this road today and had an absolute blast. This is probably one of the best roads I've ridden in PA. My last favorite road was 144 but since all the gas drilling that road has turned to garbage. This is my new favorite road.

Great road also try PA RT 187 out of Mehoopany runs north along the river for a while. Also when in Mehoopany try Sugar Hollow Rd to RT 29. Marsha's Diner at the Intersection with Rt 29 is a good place to eat.

I rode this with my Dad and uncle in April 2009. This is beautiful road to ride. I've driven the road in a car but it's much better on bike. Like most anywhere in NE PA look out for the deer at dusk. The Google map is actually showing 220 and not 87.

One of the best roads in the Northeast of Pa. My favorite part is from Williamsport to Dushore.. Nice mix of tight turns and sweeping corners..A stop at Forksville Inn for a Cheese steak is a true reward also.. Best i ever had..

route 87 is one of the sweetest roads in PA. It's not overly challenging, but sure keeps a smile on your face as you go a little faster. It flows sooo nicely. My friends and i always camp along it at Rocky Valley campground when we do a ride up that way.

My husband and I went for a weekend ride on our Gold Wings last weekend and ended up on this road. Lots of great roads in PA but this one definitely made my list of favorites!
