Holmes County Trail...

Bikes and Amish Buggies

Part of the 326-mile Ohio to Erie Trail, this is the only trail designed to accommodate Amish buggies, having a separate buggy lane. 15 miles are completed between Fredericksburg and Killbuck, OH. We were based at Millersburg at approximately the midpoint of the trail. Half the population of Holmes County is Amish (one of the largest Amish communities in the world) which led to some interesting sights. Very pretty countryside and towns, and good food, too. At the western end of the trail, a 7.5 mile extension has been completed from Glenmont to Gann (Brinkhaven), connecting to the Mohican Valley Trail. Connecting Glenmont to Killbuck is a future project. (Detailed map and photos below.)
