A stop at a country church in Damascus Township, Pennsylvania. North of Hawley, State Route 6 is a bit slow. At State Route 652, I headed east toward the Narrowsburg Bridge, turning left onto State Route 1017 just before the bridge. This rural road (which turns into State Route 1004) snakes along the western bank of the Delaware River, passing backwoods homes, weaving through woods and past small farms. It feels more like you are cruising through the 19th century than the 21st. At Damascus Township, the undulating and scenic State Route 371 (Great Bend Turnpike) cuts its way west deep into the heart of rural Pennsylvania. This is one great ride through farmland and forest with more cows in sight than people. At its halfway point, I stopped for gas and a snack in Rileyville, at the junction with Hancock Highway (State Route 191), which is a good place to stop since there aren't many gas stations in this area. For a sit-down, down-home breakfast or lunch, check out Woody's Country Kitchen, located another seven miles west at the junction with State Route 247 (Creamton Drive).
