Salt Fork Lake in Autumn

Pretty autumn colors will be just a blur on this somewhat spirited two day tour on twisting roads. The tour will be limited to 15 cars and we will be driving in three small groups rather than trying to keep a long parade together at brisk speeds.

We will start near Dalton on Saturday morning, ending at Salt Fork Lodge mid-afternoon with time to enjoy all that this beautiful state park has to offer, head back on Sunday, ending somewhere near Wooster, or possibly Medina for dinner.

Oil Creek Railroad Foliage Tour – OCTOBER 15

Oil Creek Railroad Fall Foliage Tour


Hosted by Jared & Tiffany Fonner and Scott & Mary Miller

If you enjoy autumn’s fall colors and historic destinations explored with your Miata, than this tour might be one you’ll want to join us for. On Saturday, October 15th, we will drive to Cambridge Springs, PA for lunch at the historic Riverside Inn.

By 1903, there were more than 40 hotels, spring houses and rooming houses welcoming visitors. Eight trains per day brought guests from New York to Chicago, as Cambridge Springs was the halfway point between them. In 1904, Cambridge Springs even hosted the world chess championship, held at the Rider Hotel.
However, as so many boom towns turn into ghost towns, so the health spa image of the springs faded and with it the tourist trade. By 1935, the Riverside Inn was the lone survivor of this grand era. Continue reading Oil Creek Railroad Foliage Tour – OCTOBER 15
