“A nice little trail in an out of the way place.”— Chris Chaney
The Sheltowee Trace is located roughly three miles to the west.
From the lower terminus, you begin climbing with some moderate switchbacks through the forest. About a third of the way along the trail you cross an old steep logging or oil road and the trail begins climbing steeper terrain.
Just below the cliff line the trail hangs a hard right onto a wider abandoned road and changes character again, weaving back and forth across the old road bed and then contouring along a steep slope as you near the upper end.
This trail is the beginning of a planned longer system in this drainage which will ultimately tie into a greater system on the 700 acres the RRGCC owns in the Big Sinking drainage.
This land is owned by the Red River Gorge Climbers Coalition. If you enjoy running/climbing here and want to see more trails, please donate to RRGCC AND/OR KYMBA
