The master path of the great Bluegrass State, the Sheltowee Trace graces 282 miles of Kentucky hills and hollows. Sheltowee, meaning Big Turtle, was the name given to Daniel Boone when he was adopted into the Shawnee tribe. Hikers who tread this trail and its numerous day and overnight hikes will be "following the turtle," a white turtle blazed on trees, from the trail's southern terminus in Tennessee's Pickett State Park, north through the Big South Fork National River and Recreation Area. The trail continues through the length of the Daniel Boone National Forest nearly to the state of Ohio.
Each profile contains four key elements to help you plan and enjoy the perfect hike: detailed trail maps, elevation profiles, directions to trailheads and trail descriptions.
Each trail description offers precise commentary on what to expect along the way and rates each hike for: scenery, trail condition, difficulty and solitude.
Designed to fit easily into a back pocket, this guide provides directions to 40 day and overnight hikes as well as a thru-hiking section. So, whether it's a day hike along the Cumberland River, a week-long trek, or an all-out assault on the entire 282 miles, you will need and appreciate the first-hand information presented by Molloy.
