This generally quiet drive draws a rectangle around the lake core of west-central Pennsylvania, passing through rural settings, rolling woodlands, and Victorian communities.
Special attractions: McConnells Mill, Goddard, and Moraine state parks; a relict wildflower prairie; neighboring old-order Amish communities; an 1860s cemetery for runaway slaves and freedmen; a working forge; bison ranch; picnicking, shopping, hiking, fishing, boating, swimming, and winter sports.
