Martin Hill Road and Blankley Hill Road Overlooks: Spectacular Views in Buchanan State Forest

There are a number of pretty roadside overlooks in Buchanan State Forest, several of the prettiest and easiest to find ones are located on Martin Hill Rd and Blankley Hill Rd. They are both essentially the same road and if you follow them you will see at least 3 scenic overlooks looking on either direction of the ridge. 

The Sweet Root Gap Vista is at the top of the gap in which the Sweet Root Natural Area and trail are based. The Mid-State Trail goes through this spot. If you are headed from Maryland's Rocky Gap State Park, a popular destination for Pennsylvanians, it is great to watch the geology unfold by routing yourself through this area. 
The three named vistas in this spot are the Martin Hill Firetower View, Sweet Root Gap Vista, and Rainsburg View.

You can't miss these overlooks if you follow Martin Hill Road and Blankley Hill Rd. I love state forest roads like this that lead towards successions of scenic overlooks like this. Put Martin Hill Rd into your navigation app and you should not have any trouble finding these spots.
