The Butler County Donut Trail locations are perfect for celebrating National Donut Day today.

The Donut Trail has become a major part of Butler County’s culinary culture. Every donut shop features their own specialties, such as the “Ugly” from Central Pastry Shop or a “Raspberry Cheesecake” donut from The Donut Spot to Jupiter Coffee & Donuts signature “Miami Maple Merger” or a “S’mores” donut from Kelly’s Bakery.

In its sixth year, the Donut Trail is gaining more national attention than ever before, including recently being featured in the spring edition of Chevy New Roads Magazine. The Donut Trail started in January 2016 with nine stores.

The Donut Trail is now comprised of 13 mom-and-pop donut shops that are located in communities across Butler County. Participants can pick up a passport at an individual shop, or download it at www.gettothebc.com/donut-trail.

A couple of years ago, a video from Delish came out about the Donut Trail, which now has had more than 14 million views.

“When that video came out, we had a pair of flight attendants from Florida who used their day off to literally fly from Florida to Ohio to do the Donut Trail,” said Tracy Kocher, vice president of marketing and communications for Butler County Visitors Bureau. “It’s a lot of fun to see the enthusiasm as people complete it … The joy is infectious.”
