From US-40/US-22 East of Cambridge, take Right onto Route 265 - Leatherwood Road - through Baileys Mills Ohio. Veer left and Follow 147 Leatherwood Pike through Barnesville Ohio. Take a right onto Route 800, Somerton Highway. Take Route 800 south for just about a mile or two you then you'll need to pick up Route 148 (Captina Highway) heading West (take a left) for 21.2 Miles to the end point of Powhatan Point at the Ohio River. Enjoy!
This road winds beautifully through farming valleys and forests. The road is mostly shaded through the entire trip!
Wonderful winding road that has apparently been recently paved. It is a route for mining trucks so be wary of fast moving vehicles coming down steep hills.
Not very many towns on this route, so make sure you gas up before hitting Cambridge and getting on Rt-265.
