Written Directions

Western end is the intersection of Powells Valley Road with PA Rte 147 in Halifax north of Harrisburg. Go due east until you intersect with Rte 209 in Lykens.

Scenery

Fabulous road through the valley with nice sweeping curves, wide fields in the valley floor, sometimes feels like sailing. The other end cuts through the mountain where the road turns very curvy.

Drive Enjoyment

Pavement is standard fare for PA (which is to say, not super smooth). The eastern end where the twisties are has smooth pavement though.

Tourism Opportunities

There are literally no amenities on this road - it cuts through farmland, forests, and a mountain, with a scattering of houses and perhaps one general store.

There is one amenity along this drive, and it's a long-time favorite for bikers from near and far - the Carsonville Hotel. No gas...just great food and cold beer provided by awesome people. Don't drive by too fast, or you'll miss it. Photos uploaded...
