Written Directions

Start your route in New Concord, OH and head north on SR 83 toward Coshocton, OH. I started to count the number or turns but soon became pleasantly distracted. Lots of places to eat and visit in the Coshocton and Millersburg area. Stay on 83 all the way up until it hits the route's conclusion at Millersburg, OH. If you want to get some great Amish cooking, try Boyd & Wurthmans for great Amish cooking that will stuff you. Or you can try Hog Heaven in Dover for great BBQ (to get to Dover, just head east for about 20 miles on 39 after you make it to Millersburg, OH).

Scenery  

This is riding through the valleys and ridge tops of reclaimed strip mining country and the views are great from ridge to ridge. Got done with a n/b trip and wanted to turn around and go back through the other way.

Road Quality  

Smooth and in great shape but narrow with oncoming traffic.

Roadside Amenities  

Other than a very small cross road town of Otsego which had no services there is nothing between New Concord and Coshocton but that section is only about 22 miles

Comment: This road is better south of I-70 than it is north of I-70. Is also a great connector to numerous other twisty routes. McConnnellsville is a nice stop for lunch or dinner. South of McC the roads get demanding and fun.

Comment: It was alright, nothing special. The turns where there but were mostly long and sweeping, more cruiser oriented in my opinion. The speed limit exists but for the most part there is very little reason to care, just make sure you keep a lookout for slow farm equipment and amish (there is also the occasional hidden drive but they are easily anticipated). The road surface was excellent, well paved and no debris. As far as the view is concerned, I didn't see much other than farms, not that that's a bad thing, but I wouldn't give it 5 stars. All in all, if you're looking for a technical ride, look elsewhere. If you live within half an hour, check it out.
