Following the blue blazes of the BT leads us to great places, adventures, and people. We hope that your experiences on the BT inspire you to support the Buckeye Trail Association today by kicking off a campaign to grow our membership, volunteerism, and enjoyment of our trail.

BT Northern Terminus Dedication in Headlands Beach State Park
Last year BTA member Velda Vogt donated the bronze plaque commemorating State Senators Harry Armstong and Ralph Regula painting the last blazes completing the Buckeye Trail from the Ohio River to Lake Erie in October 1970. On September 26, 2015 we celebrated the re-dedication of the BT to the people of Ohio at the plaque's new home affixed to an inscribed boulder at BT's Northern Terminus!

There are not enough thank you wishes to go to all of these remarkable volunteers. This work is perhaps not as glamorous as making a trail from a path in the woods, but it is rewarding and vital to the success of the Buckeye Trail. THANKS.
