Short but sweet! From Martins Ferry the first…

Written Directions

From Mt. Pleasant, Ohio head South for 9.9 miles, and you'll arrive in Martin's Ferry, Ohio. (To get to Mt. Pleasant you'll need to follow Ohio Route 150 to the junction with Ohio Route 647 in Mt. Pleasant.) From Martin's Ferry, Ohio head North for 9.0 miles, and you'll arrive in Mt. Pleasant, Ohio. (To get to 647 OH you'll need to take Ohio Route 7 to Martin's Ferry.)

Scenery

Not much in the way of scenery. It may be called Mt. Pleasant, but it's only a 'mount' for Ohio, so I wouldn't get my hopes up. Coming out of Martin's Ferry you'll be going uphill, but not passed any really great views. To more accurately describe things be sure and check the video I have for this route, below.

Drive Enjoyment

It does a good job of wiggling it's self up from off near the Ohio River, or down to it, if you're coming South. The pavement is decent, you do get into or coming out of town, so mind yourself around Martin's Ferry. Things are pretty level~ish and straight just near Mt. Pleasant.

Tourism Opportunities

If there are tourism things in Martin's Ferry, I don't know about them. I'm more of a road warrior. Google shows that you might want to stop by the 'Betty Zane Monument' - Ogelbay Institute Mansion Museum - Capitol Theatre, Ogelbay Park and Ogelbay Valley Mall.

Short but sweet! From Martins Ferry the first mile and a half is thru town and up a twisty hill thru residential area in another half mile or so road Y's and that's where it gets good. You ascend and ride along a winding ridge then wind back down thru tree lined road into Mt. Pleasant. Good pavement, prolly good shade in summer time. If ya need fuel or food get it in Martins Ferry, nothing in Mt Pleasant.
