Program

Wykoff Run Road in the Quehanna Wild Area is a road built for motorcycle riding. It features amazing sweeps and turns following a clear, cold mountain stream with pull-offs for streamside viewing of several beautiful waterfalls.

The rides in this guide are just suggested routes. Feel free to explore, make changes, and take side trips as you choose. Be sure to start each ride with a full tank of gas because there are some stretches where gas stations are few and far between and cellular service can be spotty.

Other popular publications include Spring/Summer and Fall/Winter GO Magazines, Elk Viewing Guide, and Uncork the PA Great Outdoors Wine Trail.
