Hawk’s Nest Drive, located along the New York State Route 97 Upper Delaware Scenic Byway in the Town of Deerpark, is a favorite filming location for television commercials and movies thanks to its exciting S-curves between a natural rock face and man-made rock walls and majestic views of the Delaware River some 200 feet below from a series of motorist pull-off areas.
