Pocono Mountains, Pennsylvania
The Pocono Mountains, which consists of wooded hills and valleys, is part of the Allegheny Plateau. The region is a popular all-year vacation and resort destination. Traffic, especially in the SR-611 corridor between East Stroudsburg and Mount Pocono, may be heavy on weekends. Otherwise, traffic is light to moderate and the area provides many scenic roads and backroads.
Roads are color coded by their primary characteristic: Scenic; Sweeping Curves; Twisties; and Unpaved. A twisty road is defined as one which has switchbacks or is 'left, right, left, right,' etc. An unpaved road is hard-packed gravel, but would be suitable for most road bikes. The code assigned is subjective and based on information from riders, Internet resources, Rand McNally Road Atlas, Google™ Maps, and official State highway maps. In many cases a road will fit 2 or more charcteristics. For example, a road which is classified as scenic may also include sweeping curves and/or twisties. Rider descriptions will often give you clues in these cases.
