Written Directions

Northern end starts on US 6 at Galeton, PAAbout midway you run through Renovo, PA, an old railroad town with a quaint restored hotel, Yesterday's Restaurant & Hotel. Great place to take a break and grab a cold drink and a sandwich. Also about the only place to get gas. The southern end, for the good riding part, is in Moshannon, PA and PA 53, just off I-80 near exit # 147. North of Renovo it's more sweeper type roads, south of Renovo is the tighter twisty stuff. Great road, if you're in the area you need to run it once for practice and then again for the fun.

Scenery

It's hill country Pennsylvania. The road is the scenery. But there are quite a few places to stop and enjoy the forest and views.

Drive Enjoyment

Enough curves for anyone. Want more fun? Run faster. Very little traffic and the road is clean for the most part.

Tourism Opportunities

With Renovo about half way, you don't need any amenities. Stop at the historic Yesterday's Restaurant & Hotel on the northern end of town for a cold drink and sandwich.

Motorcycle Road Additional info

This road is one of the most enjoyable roads I've been on in Pennsylvania. Plenty of curves, nice sweepers, run along the crest and running through the forest. At 75 miles total length with Renovo about midway, you have about 30 miles on either side of town to just run.

I have riden this road for more than 30 years. If when you get to Galeton (north end) go east on Rt 6 which is a good ride too. I turn south from Rt 6 east of Galeton and head into the mountains about 6 miles east and follow those mountain rds south and west back to 144. I have a cabin 1/2 way between. It is an amazing summer and fall ride. There are no power lines, very few full time residences and no place to fuel your bike or self. You have to bring it in. During the day you will see NO jet trails in the sky, and when it gets dark you will NOTHING. It is that remote. Lots of places to pull off set up a tent, fish a trout stream, watch deer, bears, turkeys. It is worth ruffing it.

Just an outstanding road, granted I only road half of the route (I rode it northbound from Snow Shoe to Renovo), but the twists and switchbacks near Renovo make this road one of the best in PA. Plenty of scenic lookouts along the way at which you can take a break, but you won't want to.

Have friends that have a place just south of Germania so we run 144 up to Galeton from Germainia, was up this weekend for the 4th of July and there is a lot of construction going on in this section, adding underground drain pipes and the cut-outs are full of stone, at this time there are approx. 10-15 open cut-outs with stone, loose and rough, be careful! The remainder of this road up to galeton could also use a repaving, a lot of patch work that is rough and bumpy especially in sloping corners.
