Listen for the voices of history here: It’s the land of Indian wars and the Treaty of Greenville, the homeland of Annie Oakley, and the meeting place of Lewis and Clark. All this on an idyllic cruise through flat to gently rolling Ohio farmland with light traffic. It’s a pleasing ride whether you choose the full 40 miles or the shorter 21-mile route. “Oats and beans and barley grow,” the old song goes. On this ride it would be corn and beans and wheat and the rhythm would be lost, but you won’t lose your rhythm on this farmland tour. Fort Jefferson Park and Monument marks the site of an advance outpost of General Arthur St. Clair, built in October 1791.
