Holmes County Trail or also known as Rails to Trails are asphalt trails that are typically flat or gently sloping, with no vehicles sharing the road. "Labeled as the first Trail in the nation to accommodate Amish buggies, the unique and scenic Holmes County Trail has two lanes, one lane of the trail is paved with asphalt for biking, while the adjoining buggy and equestrian trail is paved with "chip and seal" for horse-drawn vehicles and horseback riding." (Holmes County Trail site). This ride is for intermediate riders or families who like to ride. A SAG Cyclist will be on the trail to accommodate riders. 

Participants can also partake in a casual 5K walk through historic downtown Wooster and visit OneEighty's Main Office and Recovery Club. The event is centered around the mission to reduce the stigma surrounding the issues of substance abuse and addiction and to support the treatment/prevention services offered at OneEighty.

This event is SAG Supported and will have multiple rest stops available with restrooms and refreshments available to participants.


OneEighty, Friends of OneEighty and Holmes County Friends and Neighbors of OneEighty will follow all guidelines issued by the state of Ohio to have a safe and healthy ride and walk. The committee would like to encourage any participant participating at the Fairgrounds to bring a face mask for social situations and when possible social distance.
