Written Directions

Start in Jim Thorpe.. 209 South to 125 south to 443 East back to Jim Thorpe

Scenery

America in miniature.... farms, industry, towns with money (Victorian mansions, golf courses, rolling lawns)... towns on the decline... (faded glory falling off the side of the road)... long sweeping cures, very little highway, 90% excellent road surfaces.... stretches of wooded roadway, streams etc... opening out into impressive vistas of rolling farm lands nestled in graceful hills... sometimes I thought I was in Iowa and sometimes in Maine

Drive Enjoyment

excellent pavement almost the entire way... some rough areas in the early part of 209 but no deal breaker

Tourism Opportunities

some restaurants... a couple of state parks... I didn't stop except to apply sun screen

Motorcycle Road Additional info

not far off route 209 in Lehighton there is a Harley Dealership... Keystone Harley Davidson 770 State Road Parryville PA (610) 379-4055
