Excellent hike. Lots of vertical for NE Ohio. Wear your boots very muddy today for good portion of trail. Finished day with cold beer at Winking Lizard in Pennisula

Great trail! Muddy but to be expected at this time of year. Challenging spots but levels out in areas also. Great hike!!

Short and pretty. Ice box cave and the overlook with the Ledges everywhere makes this hike go be so fast. Lots of cool spots along this trail.

Hiked this section a few times. Not too bad. I really enjoyed the point to point hike I did with a couple friends and I from Jaite to Peninsula on the buckeye trail. I believe it was 12 miles but you get a real sense of the valley. The section from Jaite to Boston is maybe 6.5 miles? So an out and back would be a nice long day hike.

I have hiked the buckeye trail cvnp section many many times and the section between Boston and Peninsula is probobly the easiest and has the best views. Just have to imagine and pretend that the turnpike is not there in at one of the valley overlook spots along the way. I usually don't take the towpath back to Boston from Peninsula just do an out and back and it's a nice day hike through the valley. If you have a buddy with you you can always grab a cold drink at the Winking lizard in Peninsula before you head back too or grab a pint of Mitchell's ice cream from the trail mix store in Peninsula on a hot day and then head back to Boston.

beautiful view!! be sure to check out the ice box cave and the overlook. the whole trail is nice. bit tricky below the ledges with roots and such since it was icy but shouldn't be a problem for most people. good walk for dogs.
