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.

555 is definitely challenging, I road the stretch between Zanesville, OH and Rt. 550. A lot of hills and you need to on your game when the road crest on a hill for road may change direction!
I would have rated this stretch higher but there was a lot of gravel kicked up in the curves.

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!!!

All I can say is wow! You had better be on your A game when riding this road. Definitely not for a brand new rider. Even experienced riders need to pay attention. Lots of turns and a lot of hills that turn directions sharply on the other side that you can't see until you crest it. Not a whole lot of traffic, but be aware of slow moving vehicles and horse drawn carriages. Definitely the most technical road I have ever ridden on in Ohio.
