What we're about
The Muskingum Lakes Chapter of the Buckeye Trail Association is the chapter for those who live near or along the Massillon, Bowerston and Belle Valley sections of the Buckeye Trail (from Hartville in Stark County to near the village of Belle Valley in Noble County). We support the Buckeye Trail through hiking, backpacking, community and volunteer events. Our efforts to promote use of the Buckeye Trail in our footprint area include scheduled events such as group hikes, scavenger hunts, geocaching, kayaking and canoeing, work parties and camp outs along with offering a shuttle service for hikers that travel from other areas so that it's not necessary for them to bring an extra vehicle when they come. The BTA Barn is located in our footprint as well and it's an excellent place to camp.
