One of the best drives in the state, the views are amazing and there are places to stop and look or take pictures, just be careful of passing cars. This year the fall color was a bit weak but still a beautiful drive.

Great view and fun to drive...used to live in this area long ago and now I see it on many commercials. You have to do it if you are in the area...well worth it. Just plain American beauty! It's free too!

I've had several first dates here, it's a great spot for pictures or just hanging out with friends. Go at sunset or sunrise for a spectacular view of the colors over the foliage. Fall is the best time for truly breathtaking scenery at this spot.

Nice aerial view. You need to drive south along the road to get the best view. There are a few roadside parking spots that you could use to park your vehicle and take pics.

We have driven on this road many times and it never gets old!! Lots of twists and turns! (Called it snake road when we were kids). Amazing views of the Delaware down below at every pull off! It’s scary looking over the edge and see...More
