St Rt 278 - Scenic Curves + ADD NEW ROUTE
- Trip Toolbox
St Rt 278 is a fairly small road in Southeastern Ohio. It is an interconnecting route between St Rt 50 and St Rt 56. Suggested starting point would be either of these two intersections, but I would suggest starting around Lake Hope State Park and traveling north towards Nelsonville, Ohio.
No big vistas along the main route (there are some killer ones on the gravel back roads), but the cool forests and large rock outcroppings are inspiring enough. Its truly a zen ride at times.
Just paved! (Summer of 2010)
Gas up early, you won't find a restaurant or gas station anywhere along the route. I suggest Nelsonville on the north side, or McArthur on the south for fuel or food.
I grew up and still live right by Lake Hope. I literally learnt to ride a motorcycle on this route.
