Detailed Trail Descriptions from Our Guidebooks

"On this hike, the Sheltowee Trace winds along the spine of narrow, wooded ridges, over knobs and down to gaps, while the land slopes steeply with the watersheds that drain these northern Kentucky highlands. A hardwood forest cloaks the ridges, but there are enough breaks between the trees to avail views of Cave Run Lake below. This hike ends at a level trail junction that makes for a good relaxing spot. This is where the Trace meets the Big Limestone Trail. Outstanding Features: Lake views, and well maintained lakeside path"
