NSBP Nat Scenic By Way Prgm labels this road High Plateau Scenic By Way. PA State list it as PA Wilds Elk Scenic Route. Start Snow Shoe and end at Hyner View Overlook. At the overlook your bound to find Hang Gliders flying and launching off the Mtn. 144 N to Renovo 120 East to Hyner State Park road a couple miles east of Renovo. Then Right at Hyner View Rd. 50 miles total trip. No gas till Reno Ride through the Beech Creek water shed & Sproul State Forrest. This road was beautiful Appalachia Mtn road but the heavy trucks on the Marcelas Shale has done damage to about a third of the surface. Saw a couple juvinile turkey vultures, a dead wild turkey, and a red tail hawk. No elk for this rider uSunday has little to no traffic. This is a cruising road not racing road. Enjoy. I did.
Surely one of the best roads around here. Lots of excellent medium speed corners with pleasant surroundings. Highly recommended.
More curvy than it looks on the map, mostly sweepers with a couple of nice tighter turns, good fun.
35 south offers some beautiful scenery rolling farmlands and some sweeping curves with some sharp s turns thrown in to keep you alert. About 35 miles up the valley, there is an interesting road phenomena. The road sweeps left and down hill out of sight. There is a private drive with a school bus parked in it. The drive goes straight at the start of the curve thus making the bus appear stopped in the middle of the road. Don't be fooled. If you need gas, at Shade gap intersection of 35 and 641 there is gas to the right on 522. 1/4 mile. 641 is nothing but pure Appalachian mountain fun with top of the mountain views. Take 75 back up the Tuscarora valley. Few surprise turns but a couple. Even fewer police till you get back to Port Royal. Open her up.
NC 28 from Deals Gap to US 74 is really nice. A short hop up US 74 and NC 28 continues southeasterly and is spectacular.
A favorite day ride is to Deals Gap via the Foothills Parkway, then across NC 28 to Franklin, back to Deals Gap via Wayah Rd. and US 129. More curves than you can shake a stick at.
