45 minutes from Lancaster. Take Route 2 east to Gorham. The turn right at the wooden moose. (Route 16 south) This is worth going on just to experience the road! I've been to the top of Pike's Peak in Colorado twice, and find the Mount Washington Auto Road to be far more impressive. Here's another link to the Mount Washington Auto Road. The views are better too! On a clear day you can see the Atlantic Ocean, and an area covering four states and one Canadian province. There's a very interesting museum at the top and a cafeteria. Visit the spot that has recorded the world's worst weather. If you want your engine to run cooler and have more power on the trip up, switch to AMSOIL. Changing to AMSOIL ATF or gear lube will reduce your transmission temperatures. Amsoil Info: Bicycling book info
30 minutes south of Lancaster. Go south on Route 3, then east on 302 in Twin Mountain at the lights. Turn up the access road at the Cog Railway sign just beyond the restaurant at the Railroad station. You'll be riding in beautifully refurbished cars, done by Pete Steady, of Lancaster. The cars are shoved up the mountain by coal fired steam locomotives. Hang on, it's a great ride!
