Mapping Out Adventure on the Ohio to Erie Trail
February 12 @ 1:15 pm
Tom Bilcze presents Mapping Out Adventure on the Ohio to Erie Trail;
The Ohio to Erie Trail is a 326-mile network of multipurpose trails that cross the state of Ohio from the Ohio River in Cincinnati through Columbus to Cleveland on the Lake Erie shore. Almost 90% of the 326-miles follow rail trails, canal towpaths, and multipurpose trails making the trail a favorite destination for bicycle tourists and long-distance hikers seeking adventure.
This hands-on session guides participants in planning a day, weekend, or week adventure on the Ohio to Erie Trail. Participants use online and print resources including the Ohio to Erie Trail Trail Guide and interactive map to plan their adventure. Participants are encouraged to use their mobile devices during the session. The Trail Guide will be available on-site at a reduced cost for participants.
