Start in Cadiz, OH (about 50 miles southwest of Steubenville ... see the online map) and simply head south on Rt. 9 through St. Clairsville and on to the end point of Armstrongs Mills, OH.
Hill-top prairies, small streams, remnants of the mining industry and lots of wildelife along the way.
Nice elevation changes, lazy sweepers, killer switch-backs that will test your skills. If you're a first-timer, best to head south from Cadiz, as by the time you are past St Clairsville, you should be in tune for the most challenging part of the road.
No fine dining, but at least a couple watering holes along the way. While in the Cadiz area, be sure to find the town of Hopedale (a few miles east of 22), as you will want to visit their Biker Memorial. It'll give you a clearer understanding of what bikerhood is all about. For those who patronize chain restaurants, your world gets better just east of 9 on I-70.

This route is on here twice.
It's a good solid ride. One of those roads were you can cruise around at the speed limit and have a nice scenic cruise with soft tame sweepers, or if you push it a little more the sweepers come at you a bit faster for a good time, as well.
Don't get nuts around 70/40 as John Law hangs around about 3 miles in either direction.
Probably a pretty nice autumn ride, as well.
