Buckeye Trail & North Country Trail History The Buckeye Trail and North Country Trail join near Stockport. The majority of the next 110 miles of trail is located off roads on the Buckeye Trail, in the national forest and on a variety of state, local, and private lands, and will treat visitors to some of Ohio’s most outstanding scenery. By following the familiar blue blazes hikers will reach Burr Oak State Park. Seventeen miles of the 29 mile Burr Oak Backpack Trail form a scenic loop around Burr Oak Reservoir; one developed and three primitive camping areas are located along the trail, which is closed during Ohio’s December deer season.
