|Trail Accommodates Buggy Traffic|
The Holmes County Trail, a 29-mile multi-purpose corridor is part of the Rails-to-Trails Conservancy which has established a statewide, interconnected trail network, providing solitude and breathtaking beauty to citizens, friends, and visitors. It is a part of a cross-state trail connecting Cincinnati to Cleveland through Columbus. The current 15 miles of completed Holmes County trail accommodates Amish buggies and equestrian riders on a "chip and seal" surface, with an adjoining asphalt lane for walkers, runners, bikers, roller-bladers, or wheelchair visitors. The Holmes County corridor is the first in the nation to accommodate Amish buggies, providing Amish travelers between Fredericksburg to Killbuck safe passage without motorized traffic.
Plan a Holmes County, Ohio visit and include the Holmes County Trail and Raber's Bike Shop in your plans. Make the Barn Inn Bed and Breakfast , your lodging choice, where you will be served a hot country breakfast and where the owners can safely store your bicycles inside.
