Written Directions

Not too hard to find. Just south of Zanesville, OH is the very small town of Brush Creek, OH. Just get yourself to Brush Creek and head south on route 555 for about 30 miles till you get to the end point of Chesterhill, OH.

Scenery

Beautiful isolated farms with rolling hills. You'll be driving next to and through some of the Wayne National Forest.

Drive Enjoyment

Lots of very challenging twisties. Roads line the crests of rolling hills ... an amusement park for sport and sport touring bikes. NOT a novice road. One should attempt this road with extreme concentration. Road conditions are fast with little traffic.

Isolated. You're there for one thing - to ride.

Try to ride the whole 555 at lest once a year, down and back. 751 turns in 63 miles. I counted em'. If you go North on Rt. 7 to "The Station Carry Out,
595 Joe Skinner Rd," (https://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Station-Carry-Out/119683741416556) they got a great cheeseburger from fresh burger and crinkle cut fries.

Just rode 555 today (11-1-16) Beautiful in the fall and the first time on my Honda Goldwing. I was concerned at first thinking the bike was too big but it handled surprisingly well for a large bike. I combined the Triple Nickel with a ride up route 7 along the river and then Route 255 (Sardis). AMAZING TRIP with 78-85 degree weather. Another beautiful November day on tap tomorrow. Trying to figure out which road I'll take........ maybe I'll venture into Michigan or possibly Indiana and see what routes they have. Enjoy.

just did this on the 5th of oct 2016. throttle down when you crest the small hills just to be sure you dont go over the edge, a roller coaster ride for sure. the road was in great shape and a couple of the cruves sneak up on you. did it in 3rd and 4th gear enough of speed to keep you moving. from chesterfield to rt 676 is being paved.very little traffic and some nice family farms. rode from zanesville to parkersburg, if you dont do the whole way you are missing some great riding
