Featured Trip Ideas

Great weather and roads practically built for motorcycles are plentiful in Pennsylvania- from 21 state-designated scenic byways to smoothly paved roads winding through the mountains; there is something for every motorcyclist here. See the sites by bike while cruising through charming towns and national forest and stop to explore the numerous historic sites along the way. 

You may catch a glimpse of a bald eagle while riding the Raystown Lake Motor Tour, but are certain to enjoy the beauty of Raystown Lake, Pennsylvania’s largest inbound lake. 

Experience local history along Clearfield County’s Heritage Road Trip, with stops at historic markers, restored homes from the 1900s and Clearfield County’s first jail.  Along the way you’ll see the Quehanna Wild Area and Bilger’s Rocks- a 300 million year-old geological wonder surrounded by an enchanting wooded area – and may even catch a glimpse or two of Pennsylvania’s storied Elk Herd. 

The Pennsylvania Great Outdoors Visitors Bureau enlisted the help of fellow bikers to put together four rides to guide you through the best of the region on two wheels.  You’ll travel through the stunning Allegheny National Forest, past the Elk Range of Moshannan State Forest and Quehanna Wild Area, cruise through Cook Forest State Park and visit the home of the world-famous weather prognosticator, Punxsutawney Phil, in Gobbler’s Knob. 

See the rural of side of PA when you ride the Barns of Butler County Driving Tour. This route takes you through scenic farmland dotted with old barns, alpacas, cows and horses.  Bed and breakfasts and farmers' markets along the way make for a truly memorable overnight trip.
