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.

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
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
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.
