    Carlisle PA to Youngstown oh with hazmat. Is the 322 a good road to take since 76 is expensive and has tunnels?

    Yes, 322 to 99 and then to i80. Just don't stay on it past 99, not worth it

    Going west/North on US 322 is Seven Mountains Grade. 8% about 5 miles up. Curves etc. Once over the top it's a relatively easy ride until State College to I-80 a little bit of maneuvering.

    US 322 is at US 15 Duncannon Then west.

    US 322 Junitia River Sleepy Hollow. One of the best in the USA..jpg

    Or is 81 to 22 to 322 better? Than 74?

    I have never been on 74, have always used 81-22-322-99-80. 22-15-80 is also ok

    81, 22, 322, 99, 80...74 is a farm road when compared to these other routes, IMHO. Tks

    74 isn’t worth the trouble. There’s just too many other better ways to go. 322 up towards State College to pick up 80 somewhere is your best bet.

    322 is a good ride. In my opinion, I80 to I99 to 322 is a much nicer ride than the I76 turnpike but I know a lot of people on here disagree with me on that. I take 322 every chance I get
