Long description

The trail is around the fields of the farm with beautiful views and local history. Trail will be marked. This walk is in memory of Don H. Boyer, Jr. (1943-2019). Don's family & ancestors lived on the current Ostertag/Easterday Homestead and built the historic stone house in the mid 1700s. Don was a physical education teacher at Middletown Middle School and coach of Middletown High School Cross Country, Indoor and Outdoor Track & Field. He was a member of the 1968 championship Frederick Falcons football team. He was active in Frederick Steeplechasers and Masters Track over the years, and founded the Knight Striders Youth Track program in 1980. Don coached five international Deaflympics teams in New Zealand, Bulgaria, Denmark, Italy and Australia. He was inducted into the Frederick County Sports Hall of Fame in 1988, and he founded, with his wife, Sharon, a US-Russian athletic cultural exchange program in 1995. Don fulfilled a lifetime dream of riding his bicycle coast to coast in 38 days in 1992 and later wrote a book about his journey. During his time as Middletown's coach, Don coached more than 5,000 athletes, producing 76 individual state champions, 18 relay state champions, 10 outdoor track & field team state titles, 6 cross-country team titles and 1 indoor track state title.
