Written Directions

This route is really easy to describe and follow. Just get yourself to McComb, OH and take OH 235 due south all the way to the route's end point of Dayton, OH.

Scenery

Scenery is pretty late spring to early fall. Sunsets during harvest catch the dust in the air and make for some blazing orange evenings.

Drive Enjoyment

Mostly under-used pavement and recently re-paved sections keep things smooth. Keep an eye out for the "bear" (police speed trap) between McComb and Ada. Also, please keep an eye out for slow moving farm machinery all summer and fall. Remember, they live and work here, and a lot of wet spots are where former riders finally tasted the John Deere green paint...

Tourism Opportunities

Not a whole lot of places to stay or eat. Indian Lake State park is along the way and offers boating, fishing, camping, and picnicking. I suggest you take lunch in when you get to Ada.

This road is your typical country road; very pretty to look at and not too exciting to ride. BE SURE TO STOP AT INDIAN LAKE! Froggy's has good food...cheap and a swim-up bar for great sights or to hang out for a while. We jumped off at Rt33 and headed to Columbus. Iron Pony superstore in Westerville is worth the trip from anywhere within a 3hr radius.

Indian Lake is the most scenic area on this route. Lots of amenities situated around the lake. Russells Point and Lakeview are fun towns, especially during weekends with all the boaters. Going from Indian Lake south to Fairborn, there isn't much to look at. Its mostly straight, cutting through miles of flat farmland. There are some amish communities near degraff so watch out for horse drawn buggies. Once you get to Fairborn, Rt 235 passes right by Wright-Patterson AFB with clear views of the flight line and military aircraft parked on the ramp. Don't bother stopping to gawk at the aircraft for too long. Wright-Patterson security forces patrol that area heavily after 9/11 and they will not allow you to stop to watch the aircraft. To view the aircraft safely, the best place to do it is at Fairfield Park right off of 235 as you enter the city of Fairborn. Turn right after entering the city limits at an access road between the two car lots. The road is marked with Fairfield park signs.

If you ride this route, take some time to spend around Indian Lake. There are a ton of small watering holes; Acheson's, Froggy's, Tilton Hilton, Brother's, Lakeside, Cranberry's, etc., where you can get some great food! Several regional riders consider Indian Lake a ride in itself as you can cruise the lake stopping and visiting along the way. There is a covered bridge if you take SR 366 south of the lake and Co Rd. 38 N. about a 1/4 mile.
