We are planning on heading up to Erie for a long weekend. Would like a better route than the PA Turnpike. Any suggestions. Thanks!

If you have the time head up 81 to 86 west. The road is good and the scenery is great. Just came back that way and we thought it a great ride.

Turnpike to Bedford.
Take I99 north to route 22.
22 west to 219 north.
219 north to 422 west.
422 west to I79 north.

This is my route and just drove it Sunday.

Well I was looking at a map and thinking I could take 74 to 75 to 322 to 220 to 80 then to 79. Has anyone traveled 74 out that way with a big trailer. Google maps, it looks like there may be some good hills going that way.

I-86 is labeled the Future I-86 when you turn off I-81, and runs west to the New York Penn border. I can't remember the number of the route that it was formerly.

My map shows 86 running west out of Bingamton NY off route 81. We then pulled up 88 to New Hampshire from there.

years ago I lived in Delaware and we had a hunting camp in coudersport(Potter Cty). If you take 11 north thru Lewisburg and then to Williamsport on 15, go west of Williamsport on I think its 8-very good road,towards Wellsboro(grand canyon of Pa is there/ and continue to Erie. The ride is stunning..

I ran the 2 mentioned routes through 2007 MS Streets & Trips.

Carlisle via I81 north and I87 through NY to Erie was 473 miles.

Carlisle via Bedford, I99, route 22, route 422 and I79 to Erie was 309 miles. I do this route often.
