Written Directions

Make a right onto Dalzell Road after passing through Whipple, OH on Route 821. Follow Dalzell Road to Ohio Route 556.

Scenery

This road goes through several small towns. It winds through many hills and has some entertaining views. Pretty much one of the twistiest roads in southeast Ohio.

Road Quality

The road quality is above average in most spots. Some gravel spots coming off of people's driveways are to be watched, but no real pot holes.

Roadside Amenities

None. This is just a road through extremely small town. Get your fuel and food elsewhere.

I love this road. Short of 536 & 258 this is the twistiest road that I've been on in Ohio. Furthermore, it, unlike the previous two, does not have a gravel or debris problem at all. I roll onto this road full of confidence that the road will be relatively clean where as 536 and 258 always demand a much higher degree of caution. Another mainstay of my Wayne's Forest runs, and will stay so for a long time to come, I think.

Rode this today, as it is only about a half hour ride to the start of Dalzell Road from my house. It's a pretty fun ride UNTIL...there is a new section of tar-and-chip on the road for about the last 4 miles of Dalzell road in Washington county. Lots and lots of loose pea-gravel. Pucker factor approximately 7. (Yours may vary, depending on type of bike and experience on loose gravel) Once you hit Monroe county it turns back into old blacktop. I made a big circle ride out of it. Start out 821 from Marietta, right on Dalzell, right on 565, right on 260, right on 26 back to Marietta. About 60 miles around. Nice ride, but again, watch for the gravel section.
