Get on PA Route 339 in Mifflin, PA and simply take 339 south toward Mahanoy City, PA.
Lots of scenery to enjoy as you carve-up some twisties!
This would be one on THE best roads in the state IF the tarmac was more consistent. The middle third of this road is a bumpy, patched-up oil and chip affair - fortunately it's very scenic, which makes-up for the condition of the road! When/if this section ever gets resurfaced, it will be off the chart awesome! As it is - PA 339 provides some great sweeper action at the top (smooth tarmac), some scenic and twisty rough patches in the middle, followed by much better road conditions and nice tight peg-scraping turns as you descend into Mahanoy City. Very few intersections, driveways, or traffic. Its definitely one to recommend - you won't ever be bored on this road! I give it 4 out of 5 stars.
There are plenty of places to eat at Bloomsburg, which is a college town just 7 miles to the West of the intersection of Rt339 and I-80. My favorite is the Quaker SteakLube which is off exit 34 near the mall. Mahanoy City has a few diners but I've never tried them. Between the two points you wont want to stop, except to take a few pictures.
