Follow the Blue Blazes · A Guide to Hiking Ohio’s Buckeye Trail
By Connie Pond and Robert J. Pond · Foreword by Steven M. Newman

From the startling rock formations and graceful waterfalls of Old Man’s Cave, to Native American mounds, battlefields, and scenic rivers, Connie and Robert J. Pond provide a captivating guide to often-overlooked treasures around the state.

“Pond’s book details the local wonders of Ohio’s 1,200-mile Buckeye Trail and its history…. The text is imbued with an appreciation for the need to just get out and commence a walk through the world. The aim in writing such a book is to catalogue the various species of wonder close at hand and enable the reader/hiker to compile his or her own life-list of ah-has and eurekas. Pond succeeds at this and much, much more.”
