You're partially correct.  US 6 enters Pennsylvania with US 209 from  New 
York at Port Jervis, N.Y. where they cross the Delaware  River.  US 6/209 are 
joint to Milford about 10 miles distant.  US  209 turns left and heads 
south to Stroudsburg while US 6 turns right  and heads northwest to Hawley.  It 
is a nice ride since  Interstate 84 was built as all the through traffic 
takes 84.   Last time I was along this road was in 2006.
If one turns onto NY 97 from US 6/209 in Port Jervis that will take  you to 
the Hawk's Nest which is another interesting road.  A BMW commercial  was 
filmed here about 20 years ago.  
Keep it coming.  I'm developing a long list.

Route 6 in NE PA, From the PA/NY/NJ (Milford?) to Scranton, via  Hawley. It 
was a beautiful and very fun drive when I was going to college back  in the 
80's. It was a bonus that they paved it just before I moved there. It  was 
a shame that I was driving a 351 powered Mustang II. I really couldn't  
enjoy it like I could have were I driving a Corvair.

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 
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  
take Co Rd 16 east out of Tannersville off  the south side of  NY 23A.  NY 
itself climbs into the  Catskills via a clove -  Kaaterskill Clove between
Palenville and Haines Falls,  N.Y.
