Welcome to Central Ohio Hikers & Backpackers! COHB is a group of active hiking and backpacking enthusiasts with a serious interest in longer day hikes and multiple-day backpacking trips in and around Ohio. There are a number of other "walk-in-the-park" groups out there, but the focus of this group is on longer hikes and backpacking events. Events offered by COHB include the following:
- A wide variety of day-hikes from 5 to 20 miles in length.
- Two and three day backpacking trips in and around Ohio.
- Day-hikes combined with car-camping outings.
- An occasional hiking or backpacking trip at a distant location.
Membership is subject to some very basic COHB membership policies. Group policy requires that your main profile photo must clearly show your face, and that you sign-in on our meetup site at least once every 6 months.
YOUR REQUEST TO JOIN COHB WILL BE DECLINED IF YOUR COHB PROFILE DOES NOT HAVE A PRIMARY PHOTO THAT CLEARLY SHOWS YOUR FACE.
Once you are approved for membership, you will have access to all of our past and upcoming events.
