Scenery

Dismal Hollow Rd/State Route 647 is a nice twisty road weaving under Rt66 heading toward 624 Happy Creek Rd. Once there it is a nice mostly straight with several Maximum Safe Speed corners of 10MPH. Along the way you will cross Morgans Ford. A low water bridge approximately 2' above the Shenandoah River (Although I've seen this bridge under 10' of water during heavy rain events)It is a one way bridge with a pull off on the near end for fishing and swimming. The remaining road is rolling hills with mountain views on each side of the road.

Road Quality

The bridge is usually a little rough but the rest is nice road.

Roadside Amenities

The Apple House at the beginning of the trip has a nice restaurant and a store with local products. Gas Station next door.

We started at the 50 and rode it all the way to Front Royal on the 624. My dad recommended it and we're so glad he did! Nice smooth ride with great scenery. I'm a new rider and had no trouble.

The bridge is currently being fixed and expect a long detour on the east side of the river which is another great route to join back up to Route 50. Many dirt and gravel unimproved roads on the east side of the river in this area for adventure bikers. Great fun on a honda 250 and my Triumph Tiger 800. Love this area for a ride and be sure to eat at the Apple Barn in Lindon. Grilled pastrami is best I have had.
