Day Hike - Troy Section Walk (Annual Signature Event)

The Miami Rivers Chapter of the Buckeye Trail Association will be hosting three signature events each year, this being the second one, a beautiful spring walk along the Buckeye Trail in the Troy Section.  These signature events will be annual affairs and will be set up to encourage not only all chapter members but also the general public to join in.

This hike will start at the National Museum of the United States Air Force, take the Buckeye Trail through Eastwood MetroPark and break for lunch at 2nd Street Market, another unit of the fabulous Five Rivers MetroParks system.  We will meet between 8:45 and 9:00 at the museum, tour the museum for an hour (no admission fee), then head to the market.  After an extended lunch break at the market, we will return to the museum. 

Total distance is a flat twelve miles to the market and back, but as this is an out and back hike, folks can do shorter distances, so please do not let the mention of twelve miles deter you!

Post hike - Will be at Warped Wing Brewing Company and/or Toxic Brew Company.

    Greetings to all! Just a few things I would like to mention before next Saturday's hike...

    Please note that for security reasons at the Air Force Museum...backpacks and large camera cases are not permitted within the museum. Also, food and drink, including bottled water, are not permitted in the museum galleries. The Museum is well attended by many and a line forms outside the building before 9:00 at the entrance. Please keep this in mind as you arrive and meet us at the end of the main parking lot. We want to give each of you as much time as possible within the museum to enjoy the exhibits before the hike. Arrival time is 8:45-9:00 as mentioned above.

    The hike will begin at 10:00am (or close to that time). Please meet outside, next to the front entrance of the Museum on the left, within the picnic table area. We won't be hard to find! I can't wait to see all of you next Saturday!

    Until then...have a great week!

    Yvonne
