Ohio SR 56 + ADD NEW ROUTE
- Trip Toolbox
Begins by taking route 56 off of Route 4 just south of Urbana, OH, and ends in Athens, OH
This route starts in Heartland farms full of golden wheat and green grass, takes a dive into the deep green of Hocking Hills, and ends up with the Appalachian foothill vistas of rural southern Ohio.
This route begins in soft swelling, wide turning farmland south of Urbana, and turns into a twisty green cavern as it winds its way through Hocking Hills, ending up in Athens and its gorgeous green rolling hills. The pavement is at worst a bit rough, and through the twisty Hocking Hills State park, the pavement is nigh perfect.
Make sure you gas up! London is the first real stop after Urbana, followed by Circleville, and while there are plenty of little towns along the way, the route is so rural you can go for quite some time without seeing another gas station. Jimbos in Bloomingville and the Smiling Skull Saloon in Athens are both great joints to stop at.
