I'd like to know too. I have family in Michigan and ride across northeast Ohio to get to Michigan. I dread this portion of the ride.

We found lots of great riding in SE Ohio, from Zanesville Rte 555(the triple nickel) south thru Hocking Hills, Rte 78, and along the Ohio river. Stayed in the Wayne NF campground. A trip across the river to WV is worth it if you have the time. Like they say ' there are no bad roads in WV. B.

I second "tourit's" comments. Southern Ohio has a LOT of nice roads. I do like 555, 146, 78, 800, 7, 83, 93, and any road in Hocking Hills area, just to name a few. Go over into WVA and head to Blackwater Falls state park. Every road to it, and out of the area, is a great road. Sometime I just point the GW and just start riding. Every road leads to somewhere! Ride safely!

The fact that there is a highway to he** but only a stairway to Heaven says a lot about the anticipated traffic volume....

Anything south of Rt 30 is nice. The Athens area is great riding but so is the south eastern area near Steubenville and Wheeling WV.
