Written Directions

The ride begins in Zanesville Ohio along the Muskingum River and end in Marietta Ohio where the Muskingum River meets the Ohio River.m From Zanesville you head south on OH route 60. Continue south/southeast through McConnel and Waterford and take 60 all the way into Marietta.

Scenery

After leaving Zanesville Ohio you will ride along the winding banks of the Muskingum river. You will enjoy beautiful hill sides and farm land as you ride south. Small towns like McConnelsville that will take you back in time to the small quaint little country towns. As you pull into Marietta at the end of the ride. You can take some time to relax along the banks of the Ohio river and watch the barges and boat traffic as they move up and down the river.

Drive Enjoyment

The roads are nicely paved with long straightaways and long sweeping curves. Not much elevation change which allows you to just relax and enjoy the scenery and the ride.

Tourism Opportunities

The Muskingum river has several locks along the way that changes water elevation. Take along something to snack on while you stop and enjoy the view while boats pass through them. Zanesville McConnelsville and Marietta are all river towns and have that quaint feel about them with small restaurants and dinners. Once you arrive in Marietta, you can enjoy the many shops that line the main road.

Great relaxing road through a few small towns. Some of the scenery can be a little dreary at times. All in all a nice ride.

Nice leisurely ride along the Muskingum. If you want to continue to follow the river... from McConnelsville take 376 south to 266 east. About 10 miles south of McConnelsvile on OH-376 you'll come to a stop sign, OH-266 east is straight, 266 west goes across the bridge over to Stockport. Stockport Mill Inn is worth checking out. Go back across bridge, turn right at stop sign onto 266 east, this will bring you back out to 60, turn right, continue south onto Marietta. This route truly follows the Muskingum and takes you past Stockport Mill Inn & Restaurant which is a really cool place! As of August/2019 376 is closed 2 miles south of McConnelsville. Can get around going on west side of river using 377 south to 266 east.
