    PA Tuscarora SF Concord Road open until Dec 11 2016

    concordrd.jpg
    I rode out through the Tuscarora State Forest Oct 30 and north of New Germantown I found that the gate on Concord Road was open and a sign posted that it would remain open through the end of deer season. First time I had a chance to ride on this road. Knife edge on top of the ridge, rocky but not bad over all.

    I followed mostly back roads through western Perry County until Fowlers Hollow SP, then over the ridge to the Covered Bridge south of New Germantown, then up onto the Conococheague Ridge. After that, out Horse Valley and down to the Path Valley Family Dinner for coffee.

    On the way back. went to Fannetsburg, down 75 then crossed over the mountains to Roxburry on some nice twisties. Better than riding on 641 IMO. With the approaching storm visible over Blue Mtn as I hit Newville, I grabbed a patch of I81 and 'beamed' home just in time to be in the garage before the rain fell.

    Reply - road conditions on the ride

    It was mostly paved road. However the section from New Germantown up over the mountain and down to Horse Valley was in the Tuscarora SF and was all dirt ... forest roads.

    The trip logs I post are mostly Google Timeline. When you set the permission, google tracks your phone or device. I edit the result to snap to road since most of these rides have spotty data connections. Then I just do a screen shot and save as a jpeg. FYI. Jeff.
