If your going to run this may as well run it all… OH-503 is only 40 miles long, running north/south from Seven Mile to Oh-121, just south of Wayne Lakes. The section south of West Alex is the more hilly stretch, section north is the more twisty, (well twisty for this part of Ohio). Surface is in good shape, stretch between Gratis and West Alex was chip n sealed in 2017, so it doesn't have as smooth a surface as the rest, it's not rough riding, just surface is coarse. I've never really noticed any gravel and I've road this many, many times. Gas available in Gratis, West Alex and Lewisburg, Buckeye Jake's in West Alex is a decent place to eat, it's just one block east of traffic light at 503 & US-35 intersection.. I would suggest to either start or finish at Barn N Bunk Farm Market, 3677 Wayne Madison Rd in Trenton, 1/4 mile north of OH-73. Trenton is only 4 miles east of Seven Mile. Neat little place with country store, Amish cookies, old fashioned candies and a deli with cold sandwiches, hamburgers and hand dipped ice cream. Tables inside and out. Speedway and UDF at corner of 73 & Wayne Madison Rd in Trenton. There are some other decent roads in the area as well as a number of covered bridges.
