Motorcycle Road Length: 17 Miles
The route basically starts in Steubenville, Ohio where you'll find State Route 213 (at the intersection of Ohio State Route 7 and US Route 22 just north of Steubenville). Take 213 north as it meanders north for about 20 miles. It rejoins Rt 7 just south of Wellsville Ohio at a rest stop.
This is your basic eastern Ohio country road. A few farms, hills and valleys as the route parallels the Ohio River and never strays more than 2 miles from the river, and lots of residences along the way.
This routes' strong point is definitely it's motorcycle road quality! It has some pretty dramatic elevation changes going from the level of the Ohio River to maybe 500' above it. At those elevation changes, the road can get pretty twisty. Near the north end, there is a nice switch back.
The north end of 213 sports a campground and the confluence of Yellow Creek into the Ohio River.

|Comment: Route 213 was partially Asphalted in 2012. It has a few sharp turns with some grades. The scenery is just as explained. There are a few rail road crossings and hidden drives, so be careful. Speed limit is from 35, 45, & up to 55mph.|
