Buckeye Trail Association
The Buckeye Trail is literally at our front door! How cool is that? The BTA has been organizing volunteers, maintaining the trail, conserving and protecting lands, mapping the trail, and much more since its inception in 1954. Their efforts have provided over 1,400 miles of hiking trails around the state of Ohio. In 2012, Milford had the ribbon cutting to make the city an official “Trail Town”.
Since RRT’s first full year in 2011, we have been helping sponsor events and fundraising for the BTA and, in 2012, became official sponsors of the Buckeye Trail Fest, the organization’s largest event. RRT continues support through events, Association promotions, and sponsorship.
The first sponsored fundraiser for the Buckeye Trail at RRT was in 2018. We were able to raise nearly $1,000 and recruit over two-dozen new members for the BTA! The 2019 fundraiser was a day hike and camp-out along the Buckeye Trail! This event was co-sponsored by RRT, Osprey, and Little Miami Brewing Co. We hope to co-organize more events including group hikes and increase exposure to this great trail as time goes on. Look for future events on the RRT page such as Buckeye Trail thru-hiker talks, ways to get involved, and trail town events! For more information on the Buckeye Trail Association visit the link below:
