Getting Outside – preparing for a hiking adventure
7 – 8 p.m.
This program for adults is part of the 2017 Self Reliance Series.
Registration is required.
Whether you hike, backpack or just like to get out and explore, Ohio has wonderful trails all year round. What about the Buckeye Trail? The Buckeye Trail Association (BTA), founded in 1958, oversees 1,444 miles of trails around the state of Ohio. The BTA organizes sectional hikes of the trail, maintains the trail through the effort of volunteer trail maintenance crews and “trail adopters” and organizes annual events like the Buckeye TrailFest.
Never heard about the Ohio “Blue Blazes”, then come to the evening presentation at the Pickerington Library and learn more. The presentation will also include information about how to prepare for getting out for a backpacking or hiking trek and what to bring.
Join Mark Cunningham and Ted Shigley, BTA volunteers, to discuss planning for a hike or trek.
