Buckeye, Valley, & Hudson Trails

 

We'll hike the Buckeye Trail north to just before Boston Mills Rd. and return on the Valley Trail, including a detour loop midway, for a total of approximately 4.5 miles.

This is a winding trail through a very pretty area with a few meadow spots, ravines, and many pine trees.  There are a few stream crossings and some heavily rooted sections of trail. Expect a moderate to strenuous hike on parts of each trail due to steep ups (and downs).  In between the big hills are gradual changes in elevation for more of a moderate hike... however, we typically hike at a fairly brisk pace (approximately 3+ mph) which could increase the level of difficulty for some... and, of course, there's that one big climb near the beginning... :-)

Let's meet at the Pine Lane Trailhead at 10:30 a.m. The driveway entrance is on Rte. 303, east of Akron-Peninsula Rd. There is a sign at the road... and restrooms are available at the parking lot.

*Please check the maps below.

See you there!
