Written Directions

Really easy to describe ... in south eastern Ohio, just take state route 78 between Glouster and McConnelsville.

Scenery

Southern Ohio at it's finest ... tight twisty roads with a boatload of elevation changes. After McConnelsville it opens up to more of a fast sweeping road and tightens again. Its a real blast, enjoy. I have never seen a law enforcement type on this road, but be careful it is rural and there can be farm equipment out there as well as wild life.

Drive Enjoyment

Recently repaved in Morgan county. As mentioned above ... this road is a GREAT collection of twisties with elevation changes. All of 78 is kick @#&* but this section was recently repaved summer of 2005!!!

Tourism Opportunities

Both Burr Oak state park and Wayne National Forest are located on this route.

Great road to ride. I liked SR78 east of McConnelville also. If you take it to IS77 the road is great to ride and you can stop and see the Big Muskie bucket along the way. Before you leave McConnelsville you MUST stop and Boondocks! GREAT FOOD!

This route was great. A must to do. Roads are clear, turns signs well placed that prepares you what to expect at every turn, and plenty of good view

A good stretch of road. The road can be a little rough in areas. I will be back to ride it again.
