This is a decent little number. Pavement is…

Written Directions

From the intersection of Rt 601 and Rt 30, head north on Route 601 to Main St in Windber, PA.


Rolling hills covered with forests, and often a stream or river beside the road on the northern half. A few old-school one-lane stone tunnels mixed in for good measure.

Drive Enjoyment

Smooth pavement, with plenty of sweepers and a number of twisties. Plenty of elevation changes, some requiring 3rd or 4th gear! Country 2-laneing at it's best.

Tourism Opportunities

Not much in the middle or southern end at all! At the north end, Windber, & Paint blend into sizable town of Johnstown PA, where you have gas, dining & shopping options. Johnstown PA ( near the north end of this ride ) hosts the "THUNDER in the VALLEY" motorcycle rally in late June each year. Also, the city has the steepest INCLINED RAILWAY in the world ( 70 degrees steep! ), and you can take your motorcycle INSIDE the railway car up the 400ft tall hillside overtop the city for only $6!

This is a decent little number. Pavement is starting to wear a little bit, but the sweepers are nice and the twisties aren't too bad either. I've not been to the amenities around here, being a man of the twisties.
