For nearly 1,400+ miles, the Buckeye Trail winds around Ohio, reaching into every corner of the state. From a beachhead on Lake Erie near Cleveland, to an hilltop overlooking the Ohio River in Cincinnati, a hiker can experience a little of all that Ohio has to offer.
You've reached the flat farm land of Ohio where the major risk to hikers is falling into one of the deep drainage ditches along the road. The land here was shaped during the last ice age, leaving it flat and fertile. This section provides a pleasant, easy walk, ideal for lazy summer days or crisp autumn weekends. While following the many back roads you will experience the midwest country atmosphere close-up.
