I'm thinking of a road......

New postby kkayaker8 » Mon Feb 18, 2013 6:41 pm

but for the life of my can't remember it's name or exact whereabouts! Can anyone give me suggestions?

It was a dirt road, it gained pretty good elevation, it was the equivalent of the Platte Clove mountain road but scarier to me. I thought it was called Over Mountain Road, because I remember thinking, what an appropriate name. It was a thru road. I don't remember the down, but I do remember the up. No guard rails. No pavement. It was somewhere in the Balsam Lake/Peekamoose/Table area.....Don't remember where it came out.

I've scoured google maps and can't find anything, and this is driving me crazy!

Moore Hill Rd? Google maps doesn't have a street view on the sections that kind of match your description so I do not know if it is paved or not.

Would you be thinking about Cross Mountain RD located in Turnwood/Margaretville off of route 54 (Alder Creek RD.)
Let's just go and not come back for awhile.

Or Mountain Road from Johnson Hollow in Halcott to County Route 2 in Lexington? That certainly was once drivable, and it's still platted as Greene County Route 3, even though there are DEAD END signs in both directions short of the pass beween Bearpen and Vly.
