Written Directions

Ohio Route 260 between Ohio Route 565 and Ohio Route 7 (at New Matamoras).

Scenery

This is the road that forgot it sits in the WEST side of the Ohio Rive and not the EAST. This road looks very much like something out of WV with its hills and valleys, as it snakes its way down to (or away from) the Ohio River. Very pretty scenery...

Drive Enjoyment

Very good road surface, not perfect, but not many are. You can ride this road with minimal pucker factor, due to gravel/debris/dirt/etc.

Tourism Opportunities

Absolutely none. Fly, OH is a spec on the map with only tiny gas station and ferry that crosses the Ohio River to Sisterville, WV. Want amenities? Head north up 7 a bit.

I have ridden nearly every possible road in SE Ohio and Rt.260 is by far the best motorcycle road in the state. It has been resurfaced in the last couple years in different spots and after riding it the end of February 2017 it is fabulous. Get out and get some. It's fun from the Ohio river all the way to Rt.78 outside of Caldwell Ohio.

Update from Ohio’s Road Ranger (July 30th, 2020): As of June 2020 this branch of 260 is in fair to good condition. Maybe not the best drainage in the world, and a bit dusty in parts, but no threat to your safety.

I never tire of this road with its twists and turns, ups and downs along with an abundance of wildlife always makes for a different ride. Right now the leaves are awesome in color! Easy riding (challenging perhaps for a novice rider) and road surface for the most part is great with the exception of a few slips closer to New Matamoras
