Jones Mountain Road is a scenic drive along the northern edge of The Hook Natural Area within Bald Eagle State Forest. This easy, straight-through gravel road is two vehicles wide the entire length with a few mild grades that shouldn't be a problem for any vehicle. The scenic viewpoint at the three-mile mark looks out over the lush forest and across to Seven Notch Mountain, making it a beautiful spot for fall colors. The road passes campsite 31, a large, roundabout-style campsite with a steel fire ring and a picnic table. The site is suitable for just about any camp setup, but large travel trailers and RVs will likely find the site too tight to maneuver. Camping permits and reservations are required for all State Forest Campsites and can be reserved online or by calling the State Forest Office. There is little to no cell service along the road. Making prior camping arrangements is highly recommended.
