Thanks Guys:
I know MD 17 so that makes Harp Hill Road not as far away as I  thought.  
Frederick, Md. is not too far away from the Corvair  Ranch.  As I said 
earlier I'm compiling a list of places to take my  Corsa.  As automotive 
enthusiasts we should also be driving  enthusiasts.  North Carolina and Tennessee are 
further away but I'll  get there.
You guys should try Plattekill Clove Road in the Catskill Mountains.   It's 
not too steep but it's scary.  I go up and down it every now and  then to 
maintain my driving skill.  A clove is a Dutch word to describe a  deep cleft 
in a mountain side or ridge.  Most would call it a ravine.   And despite 
the seemingly innocent sounding name, all the cloves in the  Catskills are 
very steep.
I can't give you directions but its eastern end is near the N.Y. Thruway  
Interchange 20 (NY 32/212 - Saugerties).  N.Y. 212 west.  You just  have to 
know where to turn.  I couldn't say off the top of my  head.  From the west 
take Co Rd 16 east out of Tannersville off  the south side of NY 23A.  NY 23A 
itself climbs into the  Catskills via a clove - Kaaterskill Clove between 
Palenville and Haines Falls,  N.Y.
