Written Directions

From Route 30 Appx 3 miles east of Rt 217 head south on Darlington Rector Rd and take this south down to where it intersects with PA 117.

Scenery

Beautiful wooded areas and farmlands with a couple of tiny villages along the way. A few mountainous sections as well.

Drive Enjoyment

The pavement is sketchy for a few brief moments, but the ride makes up for it. Lots of action on this road, with a few necessary gear changes included. Up, down left & right, but little straight or flat.

Tourism Opportunities

You've got 5-10 miles off of either end to find a gas station, but there;s some neat places nearby. Idlewild Amusement Park is a mile or two east of the north end of this road. Linn Run State Park is very close to the mid-section, and it sports scenery like the forest backdrops from the movie AVATAR.

Motorcycle Road Additional info

This road somewhat parallels Bethel Church Rd. Combined with that road and Rt 130 from Stahlstown to Greensburg. this makes a fantastic hour or so of riding

As can be seen in the video I submitted, this route is in decent shape, pavement wise. The scenery is so-so, there's not much challenge to it, and it's just a nice little meandering bit of pavement to hop onto instead of taking the slab. Nothing to write home about, nothing to come out of your way for, but if you're in the area it's better than just taking Route 30, if you have the time. I would recommend taking 381 South, as this road hooks up quite nicely with it.
