Presentation: Hiking the Ohio to Erie Trail
In April of 2013, Andy Niekamp set out on a hiking journey on the Ohio to Erie Trail from the Ohio River in Cincinnati to Lake Erie in Cleveland. The Ohio to Erie Trail is 325 miles long and is primarily a bicycle route. It is the only trail linking Ohio's three largest cities: Cincinnati, Columbus and Cleveland. The goal of his hike was to demonstrate that Ohio's bikeways can be hiked as well as bicycled. His presentation will take you on a foot journey through Ohio on the first ever end to end hike of the Ohio to Erie Trail with beautiful photos of countryside, small towns, big cities and Amish country.
This presentation is free and open to the public. Bring a friend! Starts at 7:00pm with a short business meeting and awards then the presentation.
About The Ohio To Erie Trail: The Ohio to Erie Trail spans the state of Ohio from Cincinnati to Cleveland following lands formerly owned by railroads and canals. When complete, this trail will connect four of Ohio's metropolitan cities, a dozen large towns and numerous small villages - all done on easily accessible, paved trails, that are completely separated from highways and automobiles. Along the way, the trail passes through rural areas, farmlands, nature preserves, and regional parks giving the adventurous a hearty helping of nature's finest. At the metropolitan perimeter, meadows and woods give way to exciting urban centers, affording the traveler a contemporary taste of Ohio's culture and arts.
