Hawk's Nest Road

Hawk's Nest Road

Hawk's Nest Road is a fantastic, winding piece of asphalt located outside Port Jervis, in New York, USA. It’s part of the New York’s Route 97 running alongside the side of several cliffs overlooking the Delaware River.

The road is asphalted and was paved between 1931–1933. The current speed limit is 55 mph. The drive is definitely worth it. There are many excellent photo opportunities here. Don’t forget your camera! Along this section of RT 97 there are a couple of scenic lookouts in the Delaware River valley. It has been frequently used in television commercials and advertisements. The most famous part of the drive is a short set of twisties, which includes 9 turns known as Hawk's Nest. Most of the route after the set of twisties is a good, relaxing, enjoyable drive with some long corners and huge slopes.
