Written Directions

Start just south of Warren Pennsylvania in the burrow of E. Hickory PA. From E. Hickory, head east on Route 666 all the way through Kingsley, Howe, and end at Barnes Pennsylvania & the junction of PA Route.666 and PA Route 948..

Scenery

Nice! In the heart of the Allegheny Nation Forest. Lush forest around every banked turn. There's a couple cool rock formations, creek beds and small bridges. Looks best in summer and fall.



Photo contributed in Jan 10: "This picture was taken about the halfway point of Rt666."

Drive Enjoyment

This road's topography makes it a great ride. Every bit of it's 30 miles are covered with banked turns and abrupt, small elevation changes. There's even the "cork screw" downhill turn section about halfway through. The trees whizzing past on either side are pretty cool too... Years of neglect have taken a toll on Route 666. I have to give it 4 stars for increasingly poor road conditions. Still a must ride!

Tourism Opportunities

What would you expect? You're in the middle of a national forest! No gas, no bathrooms, no need. Just fill up in Warren and Tionesta! If you're up to it, there's a tent camping area called Minister Creek about 9 miles in. From here you can hike miles into the woods and camp or stay with your bike and build a fire. Although not on this route, I do suggest you be sure to check out the Kinzua Dam and Pithole "ghost" city while you are in the area.

A very nice ride. must say that the only thing it that is truly evil about the 34 miles of Pa 666 would be its horrific condition! As you can see from the picture essay below - the tarmac on this road is riddled with 'the mark' of disrepair and neglect as it has clearly been 'possessed' by the ravages of time and weather. It appears though (based on the ubiquitous construction barrels that often line both sides of the road) that PennDot is preparing to 'heal' this road from its possession by the elements.

This road has been described by other riders as providing twists, curves and elevation changes. I found it to be quite tame actually - there are only a few corners that I would label as 'tight' as it gently winds its way along through the forest as it hugs the banks of the Tionesta Creek. It's never boring because it is full of (mostly gentile) curves and it surrounds you with the spectacular scenery of the heart of the Allegheny National Forest almost from beginning to end. I recommend it if you find yourself in the area. For more, go to: http://www.pa-mag.com/2010/06/14/pa-666/

I was on Rt. 666 on 06/10/12. The road has been repaired since the last time I was on it. Heading West, the pavement is in pretty good shape. The Eastbound lane only had 2 or 3 spots that the asphalt was tore up. The Mrs. and I will definitely be travelling this road again when we are out and about (especially on our fall foliage "leaf peeps"). Like the original person said in his review, check out the Kinzua Dam while you are in the area. I would also like to add the Kinzua Bridge in Kane is also a nice place. The park service just made a new sky-walk from the old rail-road bridge that was there.

I rode this June 24, 2014 for the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd times - great ride(s). The road is washed out in the middle, but bikes can get go around one dirt pile and over another - just a few feet of "off road" navigating to get by. The washout means even less traffic than normal, making this a great time to ride it. The pavement is patchy in spots, but that just adds to the fun for me. Some recently tarred patches looked like they might be slippery, but easy to avoid banking too hard into those. Overall one of my favorite rides - I'll be back. Took one large puddle and soaked my legs - could have avoided it by going into the on-coming lane, but wouldn't want to break the rules...
