Start in Monroe, OH and head west on SR SR63 (Exit 29 off or I-75). Then north on SR 4 to Excello and take a left (go west) on SR 73 and pass through Trenton. Next turn right/north on SR 503 and take this all the way up to the end point in West Alexandria at US-35.
This route is a nice collection of country roads and runs parallel to the west side of I-75. It passes through southwestern Ohio farmland and is a welcome break if you want to get off of I-75 for awhile.
What is great about this route is it is like a roller coaster ride. Up and down over lots of hills with some curves thrown in. The road was well maintained when I road it August 2007 and there was hardly any traffic.
You will only encounter 5 small towns, Monroe, Trenton, Gratis West Elkton, and West Alexandria. The towns offer you basic amenities yet I didn't stop in those, so I don't have any particular recommendations.
