Written Directions

East Canton: Take Rt44 south to Waynesburg. Connect with Rt183/Rt800 south to Magnolia. At Magnolia take Rt542 south to Atwood Lake. At the SE side of Atwood Lake take Main St (Rt542) south west to Rt212. Take Rt212 north to reconnect to Rt183.

Scenery

Rt44 has great twists and beautiful country scenery. Rt542 is also a great ride. Atwood Lake offers excellent photo ops. The west end of the lake has a large boat ramp and picnic area.

Drive Enjoyment

Rt44 has been fresh paved Sept 2013. This entire route has great twist for either touring or sport bikes.

Tourism Opportunities

East Canton and Waynesburg have lots of places to eat, from fast food to diners. There is a dinner (Taggarts) in Magnolia. The east end of Atwood Lake has another icecream & sandwich stop.

This is a decent ride. Be carefull it is heavily patrolled but there are a lot of roads to turn off of it you need to avoid being followed. Its a good ride to seperate those that can ride and those that cant.

44 just south of East Canton is pretty great. Careful of the traffic. There is a development project just north of Atwood on 542. It sucks-- Nov 2014, they had two stop lights that will stop you for like 10 minutes. The trip around the Lake is awesome. It's busy during boating season so go early in the year or late in the year-- It's awesome if you do that.

A decent enough ride out of Magnolia down to Delroy. Nothing particularly exciting, the pavement is in good shape, and there's no real complaints one way or another. Pretty cool to see the lake, but when I was there in January 2021 it was a big mud bowl. Last year's drought did a number on the lake, as you could tell from docks leading to...mud. So, hopefully, what's left of Winter and a new Spring will fill it back up. Feel free to check out the video I made in the video section of this route, or check it out on YouTube at www.youtube.com/AkumuX
