I think it was 522/22 North of Mt. Union? We made it to Mt Union, but went West to head to Raystown.
I think I was close?

That is on the road that connects 22/552 to 655 near belleville. So from MU you would have headed towards Lewistown.
EDIT: Jacks Mountain Road is the official name.

Thanks, I got it, Its even called "Wills Road". I remember finding it when I was heading north to pickup the Trans PA Trail so I could follow it south. This might even be on the Trans PA Trail, but I forget. Next year I will be back.
By posting these notes here, I will remember where to look for it.
thanks

Time to bring some life back into this thread.
Yesterday's forecast was for 50+ temps and sun so my buddy Buc and I decided to go for a ride.

We rode over to Greenwood Furnace State Park to watch the Polar Plunge.
From what I heard, people pay $50 to dive into the icy water. The expression on this guys face says it all.


She looks a little in shock as well.

Nice pics, at least you picked the better of the two weekend days to ride, my ride to the Southeastern Regional RTE in Marshall, VA on Sunday was a nasty one to say the least!

Very Nice Rog. High on my bucket list to get up there this year. Can you tell some of us noobs where she begins and ends and what are some of the best routes and must see places?
