Gary S. Williams is a lifelong Ohioan and hiker. Since 1987, he has been actively involved with the Buckeye Trail Association, an all-volunteer group that builds, maintains, and promotes a 1,444-mile hiking trail that loops around Ohio. In the association, he has been on the board of trustees, a columnist and editor of the organization's Trailblazer newsletter, the head of publicity, a member of the trail building crew, and a section supervisor for a 50-mile section of the Buckeye Trail.

Williams has a bachelor's degree from Marietta College, a master’s degree in library science from Kent State University, and 25 years of experience as a librarian. As a freelance writer, he has written many articles on Ohio's natural heritage and has self-published four books on early Ohio history: The Forts of Ohio: A Guide to Military Stockades; Spies, Scoundrels, and Rogues of the Ohio Frontier; Historic Tours of Ohio; and Gliding to a Better Place: Profiles From Ohio’s Territorial Era.

In addition to hiking, Williams enjoys canoeing and cross-country skiing. He resides in Wintersville, Ohio.

“Not only is Hiking Ohio a perfect guide for Ohio hikers, but history buffs, too, will enjoy Williams’ extensive knowledge of Ohio’s history and Buckeye State lore they’ll find strolling through the book.”
