Sheltowee Trace-Osborne Bend Loop

Valeria, Kentucky

Sheltowee Trace-Osborne Bend Loop Professional Review and Guide

"The Clifty Wilderness, along the eastern border of the Red River Gorge Geological Area, is one of only two designated wilderness areas in the state of Kentucky. Remarkably, it is nearly empty of people. The famous Sheltowee Trace crosses the northern range of the Clifty, descending to the Red River and crossing the Red River Gorge Geologic Area. This loop hike, difficult but exhilarating, accesses the Sheltowee from the Bison Way Trail 210, then climbs into the wilderness area, roughly following the canyon of Gladie Creek."
