From Wood County Airport in West Virginia

If you are flying into the Wood County Airport in Parkersburg, WV, take WV-2 South approximately 3 miles to I-77 South, approximately 4 miles, to US-50 West.

Stay on US-50 W through Parkersburg and Belpre, OH. The four-lane bypass for US-50 through Parkersburg, WV, and Belpre, OH, has been completed, using a new bridge over the Ohio River. Stay on US-50 W (which joins OH-7 W and OH-32 W for parts of your travel) from Belpre to Athens. Once you cross the Ohio River, you have about 45 minutes still to go.

Stay on US-50 W all the way up the Hocking River valley to the city of Athens. This will require an exit from the OH-7 four-lane less than a mile West of the small sign to turn left for "downtown Coolville."

US-50 is now four lanes all the way from I-77 to Athens.

After US-33 E joins US-50 W and OH-32 W in Athens, take Exit 17, for OH-682 N. There is a traffic circle ("roundabout") at the end of the off-ramp. Traffic entering the circle must yield to traffic already in the circle:
