Once you get out of town theres some nice tight twisties then its a nice mellow ride out to the Dam.
Lots of videos on youtube. Search Giants Despair Hillclimb..
This route starts on 17 North bound, then takes 287 South bound. You then take Rt 23 West. Once on 23 you will go thru a few small towns with a few lights. Police are sometimes hidden or drive white plain unmarked cars and SUVs. So be on your toes. But as you go further north on 23, it starts to open up with plenty of twisties and great views. We usually stop alone the route at a small bagel shop just before 84. Once passed 84 and as you hit High Point, the back road leading towards Port Jervis is SWEET. Nice long twistie. You will enjoy.
