DeansZG is an unknown quantity at this point
Default Rt 775

We came across this little gem of a road last wknd returning to our lodging in the Hocking Hills area on our annual Grey Beards trip.
Highly enjoyable with some "pucker moments" on those decreasing radius turns. I think I enjoyed it better than the last time I made a ride on either Tail of the Dragon or The Snake!
Will definetly include this stretch of highway on return trips to that region of the state.
Makes for a nice way to top off a delectable meal at Hillbilly Hotdogs too!

Yes Sir, DZG, 775 from Gallipolis into Proctorville is a great road. If I recall correctly it's under 40 miles in length, double that length would be grand.

Well guys I wish I had know this before today, as we just got in from Hill Billy Hotdogs. I will have to check it out the next time we are down that way.

I just finished riding 775 on my way to Huntington WV, where I am in for the night. What a GREAT road. Just wished I found it before I already had 260 miles behind me today.

I found a few others today on the way south.... Me I need to check my spot track and see where the heck I was

Now, there's a scary thought. Was that the ride where a Jeep couldn't make it?
