    The Buckeye TrailFest was a great time. We had 165 people register. The weather was mostly great. There were lots of program, presentations and hikes to choose from. Everyone made new friends. The silent auction and live auction raised ~$4,500 for the Buckeye Trail Association.

    As a Trustee with the BTA I must inform you that the cost is inclusive with meals and lodging. There will be tenting and trailer/RV accessible areas for those attending as well. This is the best opportunity Ohio has to offer to learn all about the 1,444 trail that encompasses Ohio and meet the people that help make it happen!
