Maryland to Berkshires Route Help needed

I'm planning a 5 or 6 day tour/ride from Olney MD up to the Berkshires in mid-May. I'm thinking of going almost straight north from Olney into PA and making my way up to PA Route 209 and taking that all the way to Port Jervis taking NY State Bike Route 17 across to Route 9 and up from there.

Any suggestions on an alternative route/s is greatly appreciated. And/or any info on my selected route thus far would be a help, too. Especially on Route 209 as to whether it's a good choice.

I'm still working on the Olney to route 209 stretch.

PA Bike Route "L" heads up to the "Y" Route, which ends in Port Jervis as well. They are signed bike routes on generally well-cared for state roads.
