Buckeye TrailFest 2014

Apr 24, Apr 25, Apr 26, Apr 27, 2014
Overnight arrangements in the Hocking Hills can accommodate everyone, no matter what your desires, from a beautifully-furnished indoor room, to a cabin, to RV camping, to primitive camping. Check out the trip planner guide at www.hockinghills.com for all your options. The premiere Ohio event for hikers and campers, celebrating the 1440-mile Buckeye Trail, Ohio's official state trail, and hiking and camping. Workshops and presentations on hiking, camping, trails and nature, as well as many outings in the area. We will have a great variety of outings in Hocking, Vinton, Athens, and Perry counties. Outings will include the Hocking Hills, Pretty Run Preserve, Clear Creek Metro Park, Crane Hollow Nature Preserve, Strouds Run State Park and Blair Preserve, Burr Oak State Park, and the Shawnee-area Wayne National Forest. We are also hoping to be able to feature a rappelling session in the rock-climbing area with comprehensive belays. We expect to have a special session for bird-watchers, as well. Look for the opportunity to have a wide-ranging introduction to all phases of trail planning, construction and maintenance, as well as a wide variety of camping and hiking workshops. We plan to have an in-depth workshop on wilderness first aid, too. We need volunteers. We need outing leaders, publicists, workshop presenters, campground hosts, photographers, signage, coordinating the silent and not-so-silent auctions, and for a great many other tasks.
