 2.5 miles from Nelsonville going Southwest on State Route 278 away from Highway 33 there is a good test.  There is no advance warning of Lick Run Hill.  The road ominously hugs the Hocking River Valley for a long as possible and just as you are about to enter Hocking County the road turns sharply to the right and you are met by a monster.

 If you are brave you will sprint for the county line marker that is .2 of a mile into the hill.  But sprinting may be foolhardy as you will have to climb through a double "S" turn at a 19% grade followed by grinding .3 of a mile at a 9% grade.  Think you will be rewarded with a nice long down hill?  Guess again.  Route 278 is an undulating paved ribbon for the next 4.5 miles.  Just keep kicking.  Just keep kicking.  Just keep kicking.
