Written Directions

From the intersection of Pa 119 & PA 819 on the northern end of Greensburg head north to the intersection of PA 819 & PA 981 near Salina PA.

Scenery

Rolling, forested hills, and occasional farmlands all throughout interspersed with some well spaced rural lots. Keep your head on a swivel, or you'll miss out on some beautiful vistas to the east ( the western edge of the Appalachians ).

Drive Enjoyment

Many sweepers and a few mild twisties here and there, all with the ups and downs of PA's ever-rolling hills. This is some good "feet up" time, as there are very few stop signs, and only one stop light for nearly a half hour's ride

Tourism Opportunities

There are gas stations in the middle ( Rt 22 intersection - BP ) and southern terminus ( Rt 119 intersection - SHEETZ ). Little else for creature comforts of shopping, but there IS a nice little hole-in-the-wall biker bar just north of the Rt 380 intersection in Avonmore PA called the "Lone Star Inn". Other than that, either head back into Greensburg or get off on Rt 22 and head west for 3 miles to find "civilization".

Motorcycle Road Additional info

There are many other short road in the area that can be combined with this road for a wonderful afternoon's ride.

Nice Western Pennsylvania cruise. Not much in the way of twisties, some sweepers, lots of nice rolling hills and decent views. Kind of standard fare Western Pennsylvania. A decent alternative from taking the slab of 66 north or south.
