Covered Bridge Scenic Byway

I hope to do at least one long, overnight road trip on my bike this summer. A good choice, I think, would be the Covered Bridge Scenic Byway, starting at Marietta, OH ( about 200 miles from Cincinnati). Getting to Marietta would in itself, be quite enjoyable, riding on Route 52 along the Ohio River for about 160 miles to Burlington OH and then following Route 7 all the way to Marietta.
The Covered Bridge Scenic Byway begins in Marietta. Take Highway 7 eastbound and after about a mile, turn left onto Route 26 northbound. The scenic byway goes on for about 45 miles on Route 26 along the Little Muskingum River and will take you through open pastures, forested hills and of course, several covered bridges. Some pictures of the sights on this scenic route, obtained from www.byways.org :
