$3 Train Ride SOUTH and 7 Mile Buckeye Trail NORTH Hike-Back - Moderate

Hike Aboard!  and Fall Foliage - View the beauty of CVNP as the fall landscape colors may be at their peak. Peninsula Depot Station, 9:30 AM - Hike Aboard! Climb aboard Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad for a one-way ride followed by a challenging 7-mile hike back to our cars. Fee: $3 per hiker – payable on the train. Train leaves promptly from Peninsula Depot at 9:30AM.  Parking by the TowPath trails. Please allow yourself time to find parking.

We will be going SOUTH on the TRAIN. Then HIKING NORTH back to our cars.

This is an intermediate hike - depending upon speed, elevations, steps, and mud terrain on any given day.  Please make sure you have treads on your boots, and good ankle support - so you support your ankles/knees/hips if there is mud on the trails.  Bring water and a trail snack.  If you have never hiked the Buckeye Trail, this may be IDEAL - as the conditions may be optimal.  This is perfect for those that have done Tuesday 5-mile leisure hike at 3mph and Rosa's intermediate hike - and want to step it up a level.  CVNP Volunteers will be at the middle and end of this hike. 

This hike is sponsored by the CVNP Service.  CVNP Ranger Christine or Pamela will be leading the hike.  CVNP is good about getting a 10 minute break(s) in the middle of the hike back to Peninsula Depot Station. 

If you are new to this hiking group, please let me know so we can look for you, and include you.  There will be 25+ hikers that are not members of our group.  We want to make sure you feel welcomed!  Questions/Text to cell -[masked]

1:00PM - Optional Restaurant  - Winking Lizard after the hike.  Reservations will not be made - but hopefully we can find each other and share a meal.

    Kathy - This is a HIKE Aboard - - NOT the Bike Aboard. We ask that you can comfortably hike 5 miles at 3mph and may looking to increase your endurance. If you haven't hiked at that Intermediate pace/time - this is probably not a good hike for beginners or those used to flat surface.
