Another one of my favorite Ohio scenic Byway motorcycle rides that offer beautiful scenery and history of a time long gone where stagecoaches traveled the roads of Ohio.
Accommodation Line Scenic Byway in Ohio is a ride 10.4 miles long. Starting at the southern end of State Route 73 and ending in Waynesville, Ohio at U.S 42. Riding through some of the State of Ohio’s most beautiful countryside alongside The Little Miami River. Scenery includes the Little Miami River winding through the Ohio Valley old forest, gazing at skyscraping Sycamore trees and steep rocky cliffs as you travel along the road.
The Route ByWay is part of the original Accommodation Line Stage Coach route operating in the 1820s and 1830s. The path established by Colonel Billy Werden and John Satterwaite. Colonel Billy Werden was from Springfield, and John Satterwaite was from Springfield. The Accommodation Stage Coach transported goods and passengers from Ohio River port located in Cincinnati, Ohio to National Road in Springfield, Ohio.
There are plenty of places to stop and stretch your legs and enjoy the serenity of the region. Ceaser Creek State Park, Little Miami, and National Scenic River and the Little Miami State Park. All are short detours from the Byway. All have picnic areas and ample parking with spectacular views of the river and reservoir. Each State Park has abundant wildlife such as blue herons, deer, turkeys and a variety of birds that are in their natural environment. And if you so desire to do a little fishing you can do that also.
At the end of your ride, you can grab a bite to eat at one of the second oldest restaurants in Ohio. Constructed in 1847 it was the first house to be built in Yellow Springs, Ohio. The Ye Olde Trail Tavern serves up great tasting soups from carefully guarded recipes which give it a unique appeal. When you enter the restaurant you will feel like you are stepping into the past. With low ceilings and a worn wood floor from travelers carried here by the stagecoach line. You begin to wonder how many people have passed through here and if the walls could talk the stories they would share of an era long past.
The Ye Olde Trail Tavern restaurant has a motto “Many pass through, few pass by.”
