INTRO

"The east side of Tuscarora Summit on Route 30 is a nice climb with some traffic at times and is one of the most difficult in Pennsylvania.  Over steady grade and through gentle curves, this one is over too quickly.  Towards the summit the grade eases and the top is obvious as it is one of the few climbs in the U.S. where you can enjoy a beer at climb's end.  It is a fun and fast descent as well." (This quote is provided with the approval of John Summerson from his book, The Complete Guide to Climbing (by Bike), 2nd Edition, pg. 96.)
