Written Directions

State Route 646 is a 29 Mile stretch of road that runs from Wintersville Ohio and ends at Tappan Lake. Wintersville side is off of US22 to 43N to 646. .25 miles off of 22. Tappan Lake side is off of US 250.

Scenery

This route travels through small clusters of houses to rural farmland. There are elevation changes and a couple small towns you will travel through. This route travels through the town of New rumley which was the birthplace of General Custer, and has a monument and a small memorial with some statistical information on his life.

Drive Enjoyment

From the wintersville end this road is technical with turns and elevation changes. As you travel about halfway through the route it opens up into rolling farmland and bigger sweeping turns with some technical thrown in as well. It is a great road for all types of riders, just be aware of wildlife. Gravel in road only after torrential downpours and minimal at best. Road surface is Newer blacktop except for a couple miles on the wintersville side, but even in that area the roadway is still good.

Tourism Opportunities

There are quite a few great stops along the way. Annapolis has a gas station with a restaurant and motorcycle only parking out front. New Rumley is birthplace of General Custer and about the halfway point. Scio is along route with Fuel, and great local restaraunts. Tappan lake has a great beach, boat rentals, cabin rentals, and good food at the marina restaraunt.

Motorcycle Road Additional info

There are a lot of other GREAT roads in the general area of this route. route 9 into Carrollton Ohio, 164 is nearby, and also when 646 crosses 9 you are 25 to 30 minutes from Atwood Lake which is also a great area. This route isn't well know outside of the locals around here but is definitely worth adding to your route. Take your time and enjoy the road... Keep the shiny side up!

The first four miles of 646 are full of good twisties and some abrupt elevation changes. Very nice. From there westward, it begins to smooth out but it's still a very nice road.

I agree with all your comments. Great ride. and a lot of roads to turn on heading back north. We rode it last year. Cool place to eat in Jewett called Pennington's Also if you are that far south. consider a stop at the A.B.A.T.E memorial for fallen bikers in Hopedale. There is an American Legion right there to get a drink.
