A trek on the Buckeye Trail


    On November 28, thirty-two enthusiastic men and women took part in a 4.2-mile hike on the Buckeye Trail. The hike, which lasted about three hours bordered Piedmont Lake and was led by Dr. Scott Pendleton and Ray Ferrell, members of the Buckeye Trail Association. Also part of the hiking group was Robert Pond of Buckeye Lake who authored the book “Follow the Blue Blazes,” which focuses on the Buckeye trail and surrounding area. More pictures and details of this excursion can be found in the December 4, 2010 print edition of the Harrison News-Herald. Photo provided
