Ride Description This edition of the PA300k introduces a brand new route that heads up to Hawk's Nest along NY Rt 97. Setting out at the new College Hill start/finish, we cross into NJ and head north to Belvidere and Blairstown. After the Blairstown controle, we begin the long climb over the Kittatinny Mountains and descend into the Water Gap Recreation area at Millbrook Village. We continue north up to Port Jervis where we pick up scenic Rt 97 that takes us past the Hawk's Nest overlook. We cross the historic Roebling Delaware Aqueduct and then ride along the beautiful Lackawaxen River tow path. Just outside of Hawley, we turn away from the river and head back south through the Delaware State Forest and return to the Water Gap Recreation area via the Dingman's Ferry Bridge. We retrace our path back to Millbrook Village and then continue along the Delaware River all the way back to the Water Gap. We cross back into PA on the Rt 80 Delaware River Bridge pedestrian walk. While on the pedestrian walk and for 1 block afterwards, you will be riding on the Appalachin Trail. We continue working our way south along the Delaware River, through Portland, Riverton, and Martin's Creek before the final little grunt up to the College Hill finish.
