NY #97 Hawks Nest

For those of you who have never been its worth checking out.
I went this past thanksgiving. (Canadian)
Left Thurs night to beautiful sunny skies and had three days of sunshine.
This is the route I did once there

Some great views and stunning area
I did this basic route to get home after touring around a little

She might not be the fastest bike on the street, nor the lightest, nor the best handling but with her pipes it'll sound like God's coming to dinner and he doesn't like what's being served. IBA #56452

Yes kiley that is soom beautiful area there! Fortunate to live close enough to have ridden that stretch many times. Never gets old. There used to be a restaurant , bar right on that stretch called the hawks nest. Not sure what happened but I heard that there was a fire and what was left fell down the side of the hill. It had some of the best scenery from out on the deck. Had some old bikes on the floor in the bar area. Sure do miss it

Next time you come this way, take US-6 across from US-219. I have friends who just took 6 all the way across to Ohio and back and they were thunderstruck by the "Grand Canyon of Pennsylvania" around the mid-point of the trip.

NY-97 is a regular ride for folks in my area and I'll agree with you about the views. some of he views along US-6 are equally as spectacular.

Thanks for the memories. A Jersey native took me through there in 2010 on my first trip to the New England area.
Beautiful.

Yep it was a fire and I read they could not get the money &/or Insurance to rebuilt. It was a great place. Riding Clubs, Car Clubs, etc... always used to go there.

That’s one stretch of road that I have been wanting to get out to and ride. Maybe next year I make that happen. Looks like great riding!
