Your contribution will be used in our efforts to complete the longest off-street and paved recreational trail in Ohio. With over 85% of the OTET off-street and paved, Route 1 is available from Cincinnati to Cleveland, yet we still need to fill in the gaps. In addition, donations are used to continually update, add and replace Route 1 and way-finding signs along the Trail; to operate our web site for travelers to easily be able to navigate Route 1; to promote our many stakeholders who oversee maintenance and up-keep, and to provide monies to actually help build the Trail.
