Named by National Geographic as "One of America's most scenic drives" and the #1 Motorcycle Road in the Northeast by for the second year in a row, US Route 6 in Pennsylvania is the heart of the American Dream.

One of the best ways to explore Route 6 is by motorcycle.  You get the experience of being in the great outdoors up here where they skies are bluer and the stars nearer.  Five loop tours have been created to help you experience all that the PA Route 6 Corridor and the four regions within the Corridor have to offer.  Each loop has scenic, historic, and entertaining stops along with llocal restaurants and overnight accommodations.  Spend a couple of days exploring a loop or two or spend a couple of weeks touring all five loops where you can branch out and visit the numerous historic sites, take the local foods, and breath in the scenery.

Make sure to snap a photo of yourself with your bike at any of the many stops listed on the tours, post it to our Facebook page, US Route 6 in Pennsylvania with the hashtags #Do6 #TaketheHighRoad.

Printed maps are available by request through the PA Route 6 Alliance office at 814-435-7706 or via email at:
