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.

Watch out on 555. The road is often filled with cinders, not gravel. It reacts like gravel but you can't see it until you're on it. Small black pellets that work like vaseline under your tires.
Beware on 555. Enough friends of mine have crashed on it that someone has made up a shirt saying, "Surf Ohio - Route 555".

I've been riding for (only) two years, and this is absolutely one of my favorite routes so far, because it's such a challenge. However, I would most definitely NOT advise a beginner to take this route! I did the Dragon's Tail, my first season, and I think this one requires a lot more concentration and skill. The road is extremely unpredictable, with all of the blind hills leading into sharp corners and loose asphalt from the (recent?) patching that's been done. I had my bike in 1st gear a few times. All in all, it was a lot of fun, kind of exhausting, and I can't wait to do it, again!

I had no idea that Ohio had such beautiful, hilly terrain. I'd give it 5 stars, if it weren't for the road condition.

I drove this in the fall with my VTX and it was probably the best ride I have found in Ohio so far.
