Summer 2016


Hockhocking Adena Bikeway Mile Marker Painting Day was postponed due to excessive rain.  The rain dates (June 29 and 30) have been confirmed and all volunteers should have received an email. 

Ohio University's Office of Sustainability is working with partners throughout the County to paint new mile markers on the Bikeway.  The pathway will be reduced to a single lange in multiple locations throughout those two days.  Learn more about the volunteer efforts and all the people who are making this effort happen!
