Visiting Ohio's Amish Country

 We decided to get away to Holmes County, Ohio,

known for its Amish population.

Driving into Holmesville.

We had dinner at the Berlin Farmstead Restaurant.
This is also a Harvest Host business where we spent the night in the RV.

In the morning, we went to Hershberger's Farm & Market for donuts.
I also picked up a few pumpkins.

The draft horses were bringing in pumpkins from the fields while we were there.

Wonderful, huge donuts!

Amish laundry day!

We brought our bikes and rode on the Holmes County Rail Trail.
This is the trailhead at Millersburg.
There is parking, restrooms, picnic shelters and a playground near the old depot.

A view from the trail where is passes through a wetland.

We rode to the end of the trail at Killbuck, about 6 miles and then headed back.

One of the unique things about the Holmes Co. trail is its dual tracks.
One side for horses and buggies, the other for bikes and walkers.
It was a a thrill passing a couple of buggies on our ride!

It was a fun few days in Amish country.
Someday we'll return when we can shop and explore more.
