Penn's Creek Professional Review and Guide
"This pleasant jaunt will take you through the fertile farmland of Union and Snyder counties. Beginning at Walnut Acres Farm, you'll pass farm after farm and go through two small towns. At Walnut Acres you'll find a retail stores and a small restaurant. Actually, a very small percentage of the Walnut Acres sales comes from this store. Most of their sales come through natural-food stores and mail order. You can also take plant tours. If you're really lucky, you'll get there on a day when they're roasting peanuts and making peanut butter. The road surface is mostly good; one bad stretch on School Road."
--William Simpson, Short Bike Rides in Eastern Pennsylvania (The Globe Pequot Press).
The road out of Mifflinburg was a busy road with an 18" wide shoulder. Many 18-wheelers whizzed by. Along the south edge of the loop the course was scenic with little car traffic. Mifflinburg has a number of restored old houses and shops, and some beautiful churches. If it wasn't for the stretch of road on the west side of the loop, it would be a pretty enjoyable ride.
