I found this site yesterday and want to thank everyone for inspiring me to resume my Sheltowee Trace hike. A buddy and I started at the northen terminus a few years ago (before the ice storms but after the wind shear damage) and made it as far as Big Sinking Creek. Has anyone traveled the trace betweem Big Sinking and the Ky River lately? I'm just wondering what to expect as far as trail condition, blazes, etc.
Thanks,
Caver D

Hey Caver D!

That section is perhaps the worst of the entire trail since it is on road from Mt. Olivet to a few miles south of the River. A land owner dispute rerouted the trail from woodland to pavement. Big Sinking Creek is a cool area for the oil history, climbing, and karst topography....but I'd avoid the road section.

Check out Day 14 in the Sheltowee Wanderer's post.
