If you love nightlife and crowds of people, you'll feel lost on this ride. There are probably more people living on some blocks in New York City than there are in all of Perry County. And although Perry County comes within a mile of Harrisburg, it has remained rural and unspoiled. In fact, the county still doesn't have a traffic light. Most of the region is still forest, with some farms mixed in. Little Buffalo State Park offers all sorts of outdoor activities: camping, swimming, boating, and hiking. This is a great ride for getting away from it all. It's very pretty and very quiet. If you come in the autumn, it's really spectacular. If you're interested in a longer ride, stop at the office at Little Buffalo State Park. The staff has maps of the county, and they can tell you what's out there besides trees. The road surface is good.
