Pennsylvania Route 6
Pennsylvania Route 6 Reviews
Nov 07, 2007
The Turnpike and Route 80 are the two major east/west routes across Pennsylvania. While both have some scenic stretches of highway there is a lesser known but more interesting road across the northern tier of the Keystone State. Route 6 enters Pennsylvania from the east at the northern tip of New Jersey near Milford, and exits before Conneaut Ohio.
Route 6 is truly the road less travelled, at least as far as you can get in Penn's Woods.
The adventure is in the journey as there are many attractions, but few worthy of planning a trip around. Wind through the Allegheny Mountains and take the side roads as the mood strikes.
After our departure from Niagara Falls and Wine Country we beat the sunrise to depart from our cabin lodgings in the Allegheny National Forest south of Warren PA. Our leisurely Route 6 return led to side trips to Austin (where a 1911 dam break killed nearly a thousand townsfolk) and the the Grand Canyon of Pennsylvania (Pine Creek Gorge)near Wellsboro. The fall foliage was fabulous even if our drive was a bit late in the season for the very best autumn colors.
Explore it yourself sometime.
