I was excited to be on the Hawk’s Nest Road on the way from Port Jervis to Eldred. My mom had mentioned the road and I knew that car companies sometimes filmed cars driving along the wonderfully winding road.

It has been fun to trace Hawk’s Nest Road through information and photos/postcards—from a dirt path in the early 1800s to its official opening as a paved road from Port Jervis to Hancock, NY, on August 30, 1939.
