Fifth annual Winter hiking event set at Burr Oak, Ohio

The Buckeye Trail Association announced, in partnership with the Burr Oak State Park, Burr Oak Lodge and Burr Oak Alive!, the fifth annual Burr Oak Winter Hike will be held at the Lodge on Feb. 6, 2016 starting at 10 a.m.

This free event is being hosted by the Little Cities of the Forest Chapter of the Buckeye Trail Association. After the hike, lunch including cornbread, soup beans, and hot chocolate will be provided by Burr Oak Lodge free of charge to winter hikers.

The past years attendance at the annual Burr Oak Winter Hike has been a great success with an increasing number of hikers every year. There will be three hike options this year to give novices and seasoned hikers some variety. There will be a one mile hike, the second is a more rugged five miles with scenic features including Buckeye Cave, and the third will be longer for those looking for a challenging eight mile winter hike.

Portions of the hike will follow Ohio’s Buckeye Trail and the white blazed Bob and Mary Lou Paton Trail. The trail hosts the 4,600 mile North Country National Scenic Trail and the 6,800 mile American Discovery Trail through this part of Ohio as well.

Hikers will walk past forested hollows, impressive rock formations, and views of Burr Oak Lake while experiencing the hidden gem of Burr Oak during wintertime.
