Route 6

Planning to drive route 6 west across Pa. Any information would be great. We will be in a 36 foot M.H. with tow dolly. Sounds like a nice road with lots to see.

Most of the way across Pa is 2 lane with a narrow berm. Since the Allegheny Mtns run N -S, you'll be climbing and descending many mountain ridges. U.S. was an early highway, it goes through most every town it comes near, so you'll hit every light and business district. I use I-80 to cross the state, years ago I used the PA turnpike, but congestion and ever increasing tolls have changed my thoughts about that road.

I suggest you use Google Maps and drop the 'little man' onto various stretches of U.S. 6 to get a street view of the route.

It depends on why one is taking 6. Not all that many towns. There was a trip report a week or so back about going that way from NJ. It's not the fastest way but it is a lot prettier and more interesting than the super slabs. It is also a major local truck route so clearances should not be an issue. At least I have not seen any reports of any. If you go that way there is also a Route 6 book that describes some interesting stops if you are so inclined.

So much more to see than traveling I 80 or the Pa Turnpike.Unless youre in a hurry I recommend this route. If you can handle dry camping or limited hookups, there are many Nat.Forest and some Pa state park campgrounds along the route. very scenic route and, just my point of view, I enjoy traveling thru those small towns.Rather see that type of thing than a bunch of 18 wheelers and 4wheelers hell bent to get somewhere fast. you will be traveling thru the Allegheny nat forest.
