PA-549 is a short little route (30km/18mi) that passes through some rolling farm country in extreme northern Pennsylvania. It's not really a 'destination' road in itself, but if you happen to be passing from somewhere to somewhere else and you are in the vicinity, it is a pleasant and quiet route.

PA-549 runs through some idyllic farm country, and there seems to be little traffic. There isn't much in the way of twist on this road -- just a few moderate curves here and there. The pavement quality is good.
