  1. Default Hate driving through mountains but love to travel

    Hi,

    New to the forum. I am thinking about a trip to Niagara Falls but I am terrified of driving on roads that are in the mountains or that have drop off's on the sides where you can look down and are above the tree lines. Can I get to the falls without encountering any of these types of roads?

    Welcome to the RTA Forum!

    Niagara Falls isn't in a mountainous area, in fact, its sits at an elevation of just 600 feet.

    Also, there aren't even any mountains in the Eastern US that are high enough to have a tree line, and even if there were, if you stick to the Interstates, you wouldn't deal with the kinds of roads you are talking about.

    So, yes you can certainly visit them without having a worry.

    Well, not at the height of the western mountains, anyway. I'm citing Washington and Katahdin as examples here. Of course, you wouldn't be driving over them to get to Niagara!

    I am curious as to where you will be starting your trip from where you would have such a concern?
