Buckeye Trail Circuit Hike . . .

The circular nature of the Buckeye Trail lends itself to the circuit hike, a variation of the 'end-to-end' hikes common of more linear trails. Many people have completed the entire trail (generally over several years) by slowly 'completing the loop'. If you have accomplished this, you are entitled to a BTA patch. See below for details.

In the past, there have been many on-going efforts to complete the trail over a period of 3-4 years, hiking one weekend per month. Led by various Buckeye Trail Association members, the circuit hikers wind their way, section by section around the state.

There are several circuit hikers currently attempting to hike the entire Buckeye Trail. You do not have to intend on completing the entire trail to join in any of the hikes. Come for a few miles, one day, one weekend or as many as you wish. Anyone and everyone is welcome. Hike details are located on the Events Page. Check there for the latest updates and to inform us if you are interested in joining in the hikes.

The following is the last of the circuit hikes for 2018 that are led by Jim Gilkey:
