Coming to York, PA 4-17 Need Route Advise

Heading to York PA this coming friday. Leaving in the morning and trying to find a route to get to York around 5. US 30 looks like about the only option, besides interstate. Taking that to SR 234 and into York. Anyone want to give me some info on that route?

Another option might be to stay north for awhile then cut south on some better roads.

Please Help

Once you get to Chambersburg, don't stay on 30 in my opinion. Or you can go as far as Gettysburg if you can handle a little traffic, but after that it's TORTURE. I'd go 30 to 81 and then up to Mechanicsburg and cut over on the highway. Just my opinion, you understand.

Re: Coming to York, PA 4-24 Need Route Advise

Thank you, I looked at the wrong date somehow. It should be the 24th

You might look at US 22. That will take you in to the harrisburg area, where you can pick up I 83 south to York.
How much time you have to travel can change the way you could go.

The last time to used US 22 the traffic was medium in most places.

Not knowing where your town is I would think that you may need 10 to 12 hours to make the trip.

Also, are you planning to stop to sight see along the way will be added time.

If you wish to Pm me for my cell 3 and we can talk.

Thanks for US22. I've been on 422 into Butler. That might be the route to take. I guess it all depends when I leave on Friday. I've got to get the bike together tomarrow and finish up quite a few things here
