Written Directions

Pretty simple take 555 south out of Chesterhill, Ohio and continue until terminus at US 50/OH 7

Scenery

Fairly typical with the woods and hills. Nothing stands out, to me, but maybe I just like riding more than the scenery.

Drive Enjoyment

A good road with few flaws that I can see. Not too new, not too old and uniform from A to B.

Tourism Opportunities

Not many amenities as you're passing through very small towns. Perhaps a gas station or two.

Motorcycle Road Additional info

While there's no doubt that 555 north of Chesterhill is better, this I would say, is map worthy.

Great ride. Nice twisties and plenty of elevation changes. Defiantly worth the trip. You can also do the ohio dragons tail since it intersects about half way through.

Not a big fan of the blind hills, but still one of the best rides in Ohio. You just need to be careful and stay alert, you also has some gravel in a few of the turns. Road had a couple of very rough patched up spots just north of OH-78, other than that surface is pretty good. Port 37 Carryout has food and gas and is a must stop for Triple Nickel souvenirs. It sits about halfway between South Zanesville and Chesterhill where Ohio 555 & 37 run together. Hear Triple Nickel Diner in Chesterhill is another place to check out, one these times I'll have to stop and check it out.

Update from Ohio’s Road Ranger (July 30th, 2020): As of June 2020 this portion of 555 is in fair or better condition, with conditions improving the closer you get to OH 7.

The triple nickel did not disappoint. Riding north from US 50 provided a good challenge, and partially in the rain. My biggest concern is a lot of the turns are not marked with which way it will turn or with a speed suggestion. I encountered some slick payment on a hill that turned without notice. Good ride in all, not much to see when you are always on the alert for turns. Also, there is a gas stop with food at US 37 and 555, good place to take a break in the action.
