Awesome, awesome road, but lots of tar snakes means be careful!

There are many nice roads coming south, up out of the Mohawk Valley into the northern foothills of the Catskills in Otsego County, Route 51 is probably the best and most challenging, as traffic allows.

Nice road, but not as good as we were let on. Average road at best.

This road heads south from the intersection of County Road 15 in Ilion, NY and ends at the intersection of County Road 49.
This is the Ilion Gorge and there is a stream flowing next to the road most of the way.

Tests your abilities on several tight corners.
Route 51 goes down through Ilion gorge and is an excellent ride.
Rivals the Route 13 ride out of Cazenovia.

Don't end Route 51 where it hits Route 20.
Continue on south until Route 80.
Many nice high speed sweepers and several twisty sections.

This is the Ilion Gorge Road.
The speed signs are not exagerations on this short stretch of road.
Lots of fun, however there are stopping spots for fishermen etc.
Take care. Do not get over your head.
We did it this summer at the ZRXOA "Kaws on the Farm" Rally.

Awesome twisties, and scenic too.

Gotta do it both ways to double your pleasure!
Keep speed down on the few straights as police do patrol.
