Warren, PA to Shippensburg, PA

We began the new year with a road trip to Shippensburg, PA.  This is the first of three blog posts about our Winter Weekend Getaway in Shippensburg, PA.

We departed our home in Warren, PA shortly before 8:00 am on New Year’s Day.  We ate breakfast at the Dutch Pantry in Clearfield. Bob ordered a Western Omelet with rye toast and fruit. I ordered the senior breakfast: 2 eggs, bacon, wheat toast and hot tea. Bob’s breakfast included a hot apple fritter, which he gave to me. Breakfast was filling and tasted delicious. We were back on the road at 10:40 am, after about an hour spent at breakfast.

We arrived at our hotel, the Best Western Shippensburg, around 1:30 pm.  The map shown below shows our route from Warren to Shippensburg.

Part of our drive is worth mention.  State Route 641 between Shade Gap, PA and Roxbury, PA is a very nice road with lots of twists, turns, ups and down and great scenery.  Our entire drive from Warren to Shippensburg would be a great ride on the motorcycle.  This is especially true for SR 641!

Around 3:30 pm we went in search of Ramp Covered Bridge. According to the hotel’s guest directory, Ramp Covered Bridge was located less than 10 miles from our hotel. From the intersection of King and Earl Streets we turned north on Earl Street, which we followed for 5.2 miles. We turned right (east) onto East Creek Road and drove about 1.7 miles. At a t-intersection, we turned left and then left again onto Covered Bridge Road. We quickly arrived at the covered bridge.

Ramp Covered Bridge, which was constructed in 1870, crosses the Conodoguinet Creek and is 130 feet long.  It is the last covered bridge still in use in Cumberland County.

On our way back to our hotel we stopped at Wendy’s for dinner, where we each ordered a chicken salad.

We stayed three nights in Shippensburg, using Best Western reward points to pay for our 3-night stay.  We visited the Thurmont, MD area on Saturday, and we visited Gettysburg, PA on Sunday.   We returned home on Monday, January 4.  Look for additional blog posts about our Shippensburg weekend getaway in the near future!

    Linda, I had to take a double look at your Covered Bridge image, because it looks almost exactly like the one that is over here not to far from our house. It’s named the Dribelbis Covered Bridge and was built in 1834. I have a picture of it, but can’t find it right now. It was also named for the town that used to be there called Dribelbis Station where a train stop used to be. Seems like most of the Covered Bridges are pretty much the same. Some a longer, some are shorter. Only a few are left around here. Have fun.
