Scenic routes in PA

We'll be traveling across Pennsylvania, heading towards Cooperstown, NY the first weekend in October. I need information on the best (scenic and driveability) roads. I'll be taking I-80 East and am wondering about taking hiway 8 north to 59 to 6, then to 220 up to Sayre. If that route will be unbearably slow, would I be better off catching 220 off I-80 all the way up to Sayre, or should I just stay on I-80 to I-81. We'll be starting from Grove City, and would like to make Cooperstown in a one day drive. We're driving a 37' Diesel Pusher towing a Saturn Aura.

Not to add to your choices, but my mapping software says the quickest route from Grove City to Cooperstown is to take I-79 North to I-86 (old Rt. 17) west then on to I-88. Six hours and 8 minutes of driving and 416 miles.

IMHO, the 'southern tier expressway' in NY is definitely more scenic that I-80 in PA. Good lunch stop would be Corning, NY where you can see the glass museum.

Rt 6 is a slow, but scenic drive. Lots of little towns.
I-86 is a great road - scenic and country for the most part (my vote is here).
I-80 to I-81 - I-81 has a lot of long steep hills.
