Written Directions

Pick up route 97 from us routes 6 & 209 in Port Jervis or route 268 in Hancock

Scenery

Starting in Port Jervis route 97 winds along a shear cliff cut into the side of the mountain then drops down to run the entire 70 miles having the Delaware River usually in your view. The beginning in called the ???Hawks Nest??? very twisty after that it???s a good ride offering great scenery.

Drive Enjoyment

The road as of this date is well maintained offers elevation changes, and twisties and more relaxed curves

Tourism Opportunities

Their are some services along the way as well as some small towns. Fort Delaware is an opportunity along the way. However, gas is not plentiful along this route so fill up when it???s available.

Not knowing this ride, some locals took a small group of us there. We pulled over at a strategic spot on the road for picture taking. Beautiful, twisty road winding long the edge of mountainous areas. Excellent pavement, very nice ride.

with a sidecar, I do not get the 'twistys' thrill others get but the views are great.
