Aug 6, 2017 Dayhike Buckeye Trail, Mogadore section , Mogadore, Oh Ken/Cheryl)
__Join Ken and Cheryl for an easy 4.5 mile walk on the Buckeye Trail as it follows along Mogadore Reservoir east of Akron, Oh. We will meet at the marina parking area. Since this is a lineal trail we will need to shuttle hikers to the other end of the trail off of Saxe Rd. (parking is limited here). The group can then hike back to the cars at the marina. Expect the hike to be about 2.5 hours.
__The trail is fairly level and mostly follows old road grades. Be warned though that there some sections that are on narrow foot trails with poison ivy along the path. Most of the trail will be in trees and shaded with just a few open (sunny) areas. Hopefully we won't have a beastly hot day for this hike.
__After the hike, for your dining pleasure, we can go to Farmer Boy Restaurant (1324 Canton Rd, Akron) close to SR 224 and SR 91. This is a family style restaurant. Moderately priced. They will reserve an area for our group. And they have pie!

Jan 20, 2017 Club Meeting at TWC 7:30pm Trip planning for the 2017 season... Dayhikes and Backpacks
___It time again to get some hikes on the calendar for the coming year. Have a hike you would like to suggest? Have a hike you would like to volunteer to lead? Have a favorite place you would like to share? Bring your ideas. Hikes can range from easy walks of a couple of hours to more challenging all day hikes. Backpacks are generally weekend trips but could be longer.
___Our club is fortunate that we have many members that are willing to be trip leaders but new trip leaders are ALWAYS welcome. Would you like to lead a hike but are not sure about being the trip leader? Just say so. It's not difficult. We have many experienced hikers that would be glad to co-lead a hike and be your advisor. This is true for dayhikes and backpacks.
___The great thing about our club is that you will see some of the same hikers year after year and gather knowledge and friendships. There is never a question that if someone needed help on a hike there will be others that would offer assistance. This is in marked difference to many internet groups where everyone is only looking out for themselves.
