Written Directions

Route starts just south of Killbuck, Ohio, off of US 62. SR 520 turns north only from US 62. 520 goes into Glenmont, Ohio and then it's a right hand turn onto Monroe St., which turns into Nashville Rd. after leaving the village limit. The route continues north to Nashville, where it ends at state routes 39 & 60.

Scenery

starts with rocky outcroppings over hanging the roadway, through winding hills and farmlands.

Drive Enjoyment

average road surface conditions. No real twisties but nice turns all along the route.

Tourism Opportunities

Scenic byway. Rural area, not much in the way of roadside amenties, but beautiful scenery, and fun hills and curves.

Motorcycle Road Additional info

Fun road, but people live here also, becareful of hidden driveways around curves.

This route was amazing. We started in Killbuck and headed northwest toward Nashville. There were a couple of poorly marked corners so be careful but all in all, visibility was awesome, the surface was exceptional, and this was a very fun route. Scenery gets a 4, the road and fun factor gets a 5. Watch out for hillbillies in pickups and enjoy this ride!

I concur that this is an excellent ride. Going west on 520 out of the Kidron area your in the Black Creek Valley. There are some sharp curves and little twistys all the way to Glenmont. Here I prefer to continue on 520 rather than taking Nashville road north. The 520 west route takes you up and out of the Black Creek Valley through a wooded area with some good curves. It then emerges in to an open farmed area with some nice elevation changes, blind curves and hill crests. I then turn right on 514 and this road takes you up to Nashville. Both ways are great.

In my previous comment I referred to Kidron and it obviously should have been Kilbuck
