The master path of the great Bluegrass State, the Sheltowee Trace graces 282 miles of Kentucky hills and hollows. This path was the 100th designated federal national recreation trail and is named in honor of Daniel Boone. Hikers who tread this trail will travel from the trail’s southern terminus in Tennessee’s Pickett State Park, north through the Big South Fork National River and Recreation Area and on through the length of the Daniel Boone National Forest nearly to the state of Ohio. Complete with detailed maps, elevation profiles, and directions to trailheads, this book is the ultimate resource for hikers. Each trail profile provides valuable information such as trail length, condition, difficulty, scenery, and trail descriptions. Whether it’s a day hike along the Cumberland River, an overnight hike on the Yahoo Falls Loop, or an all-out assault on the entire 282 miles, hikers will need and appreciate the first-hand information gathered and presented by Molloy.
