    Clinton township gets a gold star. Went down molasses hill and it is super nice. Must have been sub contracted out to a different crew.

    Maybe that's true on the way up - turning dodging potholes into a game but definitely not fun on the way down.

    I'm with Alan - pave the thing! I didn't realize until I got home that I should've checked - I rode right by it -- ooops.

    There's nothing in the middle of the road but yellow stripes and dead armadillos.

    That is definitely an up only road.

    Only half serious there are some roads that the roughness adds a little fun but always route around them for the descent.

    If you ever get a ride in, the Poconos try Hypsie Gap Road. It will make Stanton Mountain seem like an airport runway.

    Just rode it (in a car). The road surface is even worse than last time I was on it. Starting in the 1st steep section, the surface is just disintegrating. Between potholes, crummy patches & road turning to dirt - not fun. It's a shame because this road would be a real blast if they did pave it.

    We can add Haytown to the list of newly paved roads - all the way up from Cokesbury to McCatharn. That road was long overdue also. Can't wait to go back and descend it.

    With all these roads in Clinton Twsp being repaved, I would hope that they get to Stanton Mountain soon.

    (edit) - I took a look at the township's public works website and found this plan for road paving. Stanton Mountain is on the schedule for 2017, but Molasses was scheduled for 2018, so who know?
