Written Directions

Easy to find and follow. Just start in Williamsport, PA. Just south of town you'll find PA Route 44. Get on this and take it northwest up to Coudersport, PA.

Scenery

70 plus miles of secluded state forest - a nature lovers dream!

Drive Enjoyment

The condition of the tarmac varies greatly. Some spots need work so that's why I've given this road a 4 instead of 5. However, throughout the 120 miles you will encounter many tight turns, elevation changes and a few sweepers.

What you wont have to deal with is stop signs, traffic lights ... there are NONE!!! or traffic - this is one of THE BEST!!!

Tourism Opportunities

The secluded nature of this road has its down side - you better gas-up before entering and you should pack a lunch if want to eat something along the way.

Sep 08 Update from Brad Morgan - I would recommend that anyone taking PA44 should also do a quick side trip to the Hyner View Lookout - its a launch point for hang gliders and a place that offers a spectacular view! Take PA1014 "Hyner Road" for approx 4 miles to the Hyner View State Park entrance - turn left and go approx 3 miles to the lookout. Hyner road and the road to the lookout are an experience in and of themselves - well worth the trip - you wont be disappointed ! Bring your camera (see pictures below).

My wife and I took this beautiful ride and it was great. We stayed the night in Coudersport and came back on 872 then over to 555 to Benezette. We love to see all the elk on Winslow Hill. Just go slow for elk crossing! You will not be dissappointed.

The silly comment by Mr. Jack Hoff (?) is "'a waste of time"...

The wife and I went down route 44 from Coudersport, PA on October 13. This was a really great ride with plenty of elevation changes, turns and great views. There were several sections of the road that had new pavement. I would recommend stopping in at the Sweden Valley in and having lunch before you go down the road as you will not find anything on the trip or pack a lunch.
