Beschreibung

Athens, Ohio--Ohio is blessed with a unique, 1,200-mile hiking trail that forms a complete loop around the state. The Buckeye Trail--"BT" to those in the know--is the longest loop trail in the nation and crosses more than 40 of Ohio's 88 counties.

Hikes are supported by a detailed but easy-to-follow maps and include explicit directions to trailheads and approximate hikingtimes. Robert Pond has supplemented each description with interesting details about the geology and the diverse habitats of flora and fauna. "Human connections regularly occur while hiking the Buckeye Trail around Ohio," writes Pond. "There are other connections as well--ge

Pressestimmen

"In following Robert Pond through the pages of Follow the Blue Blazes, I find myself at turns in the company of a sharp scout, a kindly neighbor, an inspirational teacher, and - if I may say so - a kindred spirit to the likes of Thoreau and Robert Louis Stevenson." - Steven M. Newman
