PA Wilds Motorcycle
Pennsylvania motorcycling is some of the best in the country.
There are twisty roads, elevation changes and most of all beautiful
scenery. The area offers quaint villages, sprawling farm land, great
people and great roads.
All of my PA motorcycle
tours start in Lock Haven and wind through the
mountains and valleys of central PA.
This motorcycle tour heads
north on PA150 towards Jersey
Shore and meets up with PA44.
PA44 goes straight through Jersey Shore (a quaint little town nestled in
North Central PA) and heads south across the Susquehanna River and through Antes
PA44 guides you gently
through a gap in the mountains south of Jersey Shore and meets up with PA880
about 2 miles south of Antes Fort.
Taking a right on PA880
puts you an exhilarating ride twisting and turning through Rauchtown past Ravensburg
State Park and up over the mountain.
Once on top you glide gently down the other side of the mountain.
At the bottom of the mountain, PA880
goes right through Booneville, Tylersville and ends up in Rebersburg. This area is mostly Amish farms and
offers some great views of the surrounding countryside.
In Rebersburg, PA880 meets
up with PA192. A right on PA192
will take you west towards Centre Hall (the home of Penns Cave). This section of the ride is generally
flat with a few gentle turns but the scenery is
PA192 runs into PA144 in
Centre Hall. A right on PA144 takes
you north and up over Mount Nitany
( I highly recommend a stop at the top to look out over the valley below, the
view is magnificent!).
PA144 descends Mount Nitany
in a series of sharp turns and into Pleasant Gap. Though this is a short section
of road (approximately 2 miles), it is guaranteed to leave you grinning
PA144 continues through Pleasant
Gap to Bellefonte.
Bellefonte is a very old town and
there are several shops and cafés to get lost in. Continuing through Bellefonte on PA144
will eventually bring you to PA150.
A right on PA150N will take
you past Bald Eagle
State park. If you didn?t stop
in Bellefonte, this is an excellent place to stop. There are picnic areas and places to
just sit and enjoy the scenery.
Continuing on PA150N will
go through Blanchard, Beech Creek and eventually bring you right back into Lock
