    My folks have a house outside around wilkes-barre I think (it's off route 209 but I really don't know what city it's in). I head out there often because the backroads are so sweet out there!!

    I'll make a mental note next time I go out there... I've been going since I was ~10 so it's pretty autopilot to get there and get to places I need to go...

    What is this Giants despair you speak of

    Ok, just checked a map, it's definitely 209 but not wilkes-barre... It's Marshalls creek / middle smithfield area...

    oh ok...my bad for assuming....Giants Despair is where they run the longest consecutive running hill climb in the country...its very twisty and a blast to drive...only takes about a minute to go up though...but its cool

    well from smithfield youll wanna get on 80 west to 476 north and get off the Wilkes-Barre/Bear Creek exit...and take a right towards bear creek...youll go about a mile or so and see Laurel Run rd....turn right on that and take it alllllllllthe way down....youll know when you hit the giants despair!!! its all the way at the bottom!
