Leave West Union, OH on Rt.125 east through the rolling hills and farmland to Blue Creek. Here the road heads upward and curves through the hills of Shawnee State Forest, down to the town of Friendship. Turn right on Rt.52 and take a relaxing ride along the Ohio River to Wrightsville. Turn right on Rt.247 north and twist up and over the hills back into West Union.

A nice route. I prefer the 125 segment of the route. I took 125 from about Georgetown. Unfortunately, there is a lot of asphalt patch on much of 125 to West Union - but once there it was decent. I expected more river views on 52 - and the road had some really bad areas (experimental pavement, some construction, a segment of pretty big bumps at regular intervals). I *loved* the feeling that I had the roads almost entirely to myself.

This is a great route, and very popular with motorcyclists in the area - 52 is definitely a popular ride!

You could easily spend a full day or two just exploring the different roads in Shawnee Park.

Great listing by the author.
