Fun route either directions. If you cross into Ohio from Huntington or off OH141 west of Gallipolis OH you can get on OH 775.
The route travels through some very scenic farm lands. Do watch for horse and buggies on weekends especially when there are Amish in the area.
The road was in great shape just a year ago when I travelled this road (2016). Lots of turns, straights and small rolling hills through this valley. Do watch for "Road Apples" from time to time as there are Amish in the area.
Not much in the way of Amenities on this road, however it's only 34 miles long and if you put it in a loop there are towns on both ends. Never had a problem with this short section. If you include some roads to the north and make your way to Pomeroy OH be sure to stop at the Wild Horse Cafe' for some great food and awesome river side atmosphere.
Rolling terrain with farms and woodlands. Good variation of turns and hills, good pavement and little traffic. Many turns are conspicuously marked, some not. Nice to have NAV to predict the next bend. Nothing to stop for, just ride. Nice crisp fall morning 2-up tour.

Rode it up from the river, as was stated by author, watch out for horse and buggies and the remnants they leave behind. At the north end took 141 east back to the river. Made for a nice loop. Could go west on 141 and loop it with 218. Several options to incorporate other roads. Was on many roads over the weekend, if I recall correctly pavement was just okay.
