Written Directions

North terminus of this road is off of PA Route 66/PA Route 28 just south of New Bethlehem. The turn on for this road is just before an ice cream store on the left, if heading south on 66/28 EXACTLY 2.6 miles south of the bridge in New Bethlehem. (I say EXACTLY because you WILL miss this road if you're not paying attention.) Coming from the south it's the main street west out of Dayton, PA. There will be a sign for a hard right just outside of town, take that hard right and you're there.

Scenery

The scenery is your typical norther/central PA farms and hill stretches. Not bad, but you've seen it all before.

Drive Enjoyment

The road is a 3 sometimes a 3.5 sometimes a 2.5 Mind the gravel and/or mud coming out of people's driveways or farms. There's not a lot, but worth pointing out.

Tourism Opportunities

None. Get what you need in Dayton or New Bethlehem. There is absolutely nothing on this road in the ways of food, gas or landmarks.

Motorcycle Road Additional info

All in all this route is quite a twisty one and quite fun done both ways. In practice, I don't myself, but I would recommend riding the road once to get a feel for it, turning around and doing it again with the knowledge of where everything is. Certainly a gem of a road in an otherwise fairly boring area of the state.

As anyone that lives in north west PA will tell you, finding some twisty roads are a bit of a challenge requiring you to put some decent mileage on to get your fix. Fortunately this road fits the bill. It's not that long, and not even stupidly twisty, but just a good solid road that one you get it down pat you could really have some fun on. While you're having your fun, take care, there is a bit of gravel out of some driveways and a bit of mud tire tracks out of some farms, as well.
