Hiking Ohio

A Guide To The State’s Greatest Hikes

Book Description

Hiking Ohio is a comprehensive guide to more than forty of the most scenic foot trails in the Buckeye State. Hike along beaches, over boardwalks, through gorges, past waterfalls, into caves, near wildlife, under forest canopies, and through carpets of wildflowers. Trek along secluded footpaths through Ohio's virgin forest and keep your eyes peeled for white-tailed deer, wild turkey, ruffed grouse, beaver, fox, and, in the eastern part of the state, black bear. Whether you are a day-tripper looking for a short day hike or longer-distance hiker yearning for an extended backpacking trip, this guidebook has plenty to offer and is an excellent way to see all the state has to offer.
