The Buckeye Trail Association is hosting its sixth annual Biggest Day Hike on June 1, National Trails Day.

The Buckeye Trail Association is encouraging everyone throughout Ohio to hike a local segment of the Buckeye Trail with the goal of collectively hiking 100% of the 1,400+ miles of trail. Select sections of the Buckeye Trail are accessible for horseback riding and biking, while other parts of the trail run parallel to waterways for canoeing and kayaking to contribute to the Biggest Day Hike celebration. (Please be sure to verify these alternative hiking methods are available in your area before making your plans.)

The Buckeye Trail shares trail with the North Country National Scenic Trail and the American Discovery Trail through select areas, and mileage on the Buckeye Trail contributes to mileage challenges for the NCT and ADT. Ohio Governor Mike DeWine has described the Buckeye Trail as “following the Buckeye Trail is one of the best adventures you can find in Ohio’s great outdoors.”

The Biggest Day Hike is a free event statewide made possible by the Buckeye Trail Association, American Hiking Society, and other partners. To register for this event, please visit and pledge your segment. The Buckeye Trail Association will also be offering discounted membership prices for the Biggest Day Hike to further assist the growth, maintenance, and available experiences of the Buckeye Trail.
