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.

Tourism Opportunities

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

I drove the Tail of the Dragon in 08
I drove OH-555 in 2012
The Dragon is unforgiving and dangerous if you are not 100 percent.
So is this road
So far I have driven here 11 times and it does not get easier.
If you mess up especially on a blind curve you will die.
You need to be ready to test yourself.
Watch out for aniamls
I encountered a moose 4 cows dozen of deer, a fox 2 racoons RIP and one possem RIP
Great fun!!!

this isnt a road to be on at night. it's roughly 50 miles in its entirty from zanesville; will end at rt. 7 and at the river. this road isnt quite as technical as rt. 258 in the vicinity of newcomerstown, but its not 1 to disrespect. go north on 7 to hannibal and enjoy rt. 536; roughly about 45 mins give or take. its a ride not to be missed.

What a ride .Left Cleveland 5 am heading south w/4 other riders. The other riders were retired AMA VP,AMA PRO RACERS,7 1 RETIRED RACE WRENCH (JUST IN CASE ) After a good breakfast at Waffle house We blasted down to Dover then took a few country roads to 555. we let the the sport bikes take the lead and for a good reason. the Harley Dresser & VTX aren't the most agile in the curves. I followed the H-D and for the next 30 miles I scraped and ground more parts on my VTX that are not supposed to scraped then ever be for as for the other guys well lets say they just disappeared. the day was sunny & perfect . The road was perfect. WHAT A RIDE THE TO THE ROAD HOUSE FOR A STEAK.
