Buckeye Trail and Ohio & Erie Canal Towpath Loop is a 3.6 mile loop trail located near Peninsula, OH and is rated as moderate. The trail is primarily used for hiking, walking, and road biking and is accessible from April until October.
We took the O & E Canal Trail south from the Boston Visitor Center and did a relatively short loop out on the Buckeye Trail, taking it back to the Cuyahoga River and the Towpath. There were several very nice views of the valley along the way.
Lots of trails in and around the area. Some people complained about mud, but you are hiking lol id do it again.
Very nice place. Trail is well marked but overgrown in some places and very muddy in others. Only complaint was the massive amount of Mosquitos. Lots of challenging but doable hills, nice scenic ravines, a very good mix of all of what Ohio nature has to offer.
love that trail but it needs some work and you cant find the markers that mark it. it runs along a very steep ravine and there has been some rock slides and undermining of the trail pleas stay off the edge of the ravine do to slop conditions.
love the center they have here!
I did a portion (5 miles) of the buckeye trail in piketon. about 2 miles off 124 and the other 3 miles down by the pike lake state forest. the 2 miles I did off 124 i spent most of the time removing fallen trees and limbs from the trail. I plan to return in the spring and continue "grooming" the trail. the rating reflects the condition. but nice rolling hills, quiet surroundings.
