Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This route travels between Flag City (Findlay) and Train City (Fostoria). But don’t let that “city” word worry you. The excursion meanders mostly along quiet, scenic country roads. And forget your granny gear—flat is the word. or more trains may pass through the city on any given day. Rail fans from all over come to watch the activity.

On Flag Day, June 14, 1968, every house in the entire city of Findlay is said to have flown an American flag, earning the city the title of Flag City. John B. Cooke moved to Findlay in the mid-1960s and decided to make that happen. The Hancock County Chapter of the Sons of the American Revolution helped to buy 14,000 flags, and they were distributed by Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, and Campfire Girls. This bit of trivia is included because you will see many signs alluding to this title and lots of flags flying along the route."
