A great car deserves a great road. Sometimes knowledge of those roads is passed by word-of-mouth, but the true greats deserve more recognition. What's the best pure driving road that remains a cherished local secret?


My personal test track is tucked back in the hills a good few miles northwest of New York City. The pass from Tuxedo to Greenwood Lake is not very long, but it is a vintage collection of swirling curves and fantastic views. It has some currency among area enthusiasts in the know, but I have no problems presenting it to everyone as a world-class justification for suspension upgrades and as an antidote to Interstate blahs.
