This route wanders about in the Laurel Highlands, to the East of Pittsburgh. I would describe this route as a scenic head clearer that keeps you smiling as you 'waste some time' in the saddle. It is mostly on two lane PA secondary highways with route numbers. But, when you get up into the Laurel Highlands, a PA secondary highway with a route number can have 15MPH curve warning signs and you best be doing 15MPH as you approach the curve. I ride with a solo seat on my Dyna Superglide and enjoy taking all of the twists and turns and the ups and downs on these heavily wooded, lightly traveled roads, albeit a few MPH faster than what is posted. But, I have passed many riders going the other way with a passenger on a larger Softtail, so it is not just a 'sport bike route'. By going out to the far East end and then working my way back by running up and down the North and South routes between US Rt 22 and US Rt 30, I can cut it short and return on either of those highways if I do not have the 3-4 hours it takes to do this whole route. On the other hand, if I have more time available, I can always cross back over Rt 130 and take these North-South routes down to US Rt 40 and back up instead of reversing at US Rt 30. (Of course if you have even more time, then you go out even further East before starting back). I find the ride to be great any time of the year, with Fall being the most scenic.
