The Ohio Triple Nickel Loop is located in Southeastern Ohio.  Starting in Glouster, Ohio, riders head South through Ohio’s valleys and low lying hills and travel along the path of the Hocking River.  The gentle curves and hills are plentiful as this ride meanders all the way to the banks of the Ohio River.


At the Ohio River, the route turns back to the North and eventually joins the famous ‘Triple Nickel’ Highway for a great ride back up into the heart of Ohio.  The Triple Nickel is an amazing road that climbs and descends and weaves back and forth as it crosses the various rivers and streams along the way.  There is a short deviation from Ohio 555 at Bartlett to follow the edge of the Wayne National Forest for a few miles before rejoining the 555 in Chesterhill.  If you want to stay on the 555 for the entire ride, just follow that road from Bartlett to Chesterhill. 


From Chesterhill, the 555 continues North and the curves become tighter the farther North you travel.  Be on your toes because some curves are not visible until you crest the hilltops.  The ride continues almost all the way to South Zanesville.  However, before you reach South Zanesville it turns West to Roseville and begins the last leg.


Instead of following Hwy 13 back to Glouster, this route takes you on several paved smaller roads.  These are not as heavily traveled and are generally more fun.  In Corning, the route joins up with Hwy 13 for the last short ride back to the starting point in Glouster.
