“This portion of the Sheltowee Trace was rerouted to go through downtown Morehead.”

One portion of these sections passes through downtown Morehead on city streets.
This long segment includes Sections 4 through 7 of the Sheltowee. It begins just after the trail crosses I-64 at the end of Section 3 and follows a wooded ridge for a good distance until it is over the town of Morehead. The descent into town is via the Eagle Lake Trail which deposits you on the campus of Morehead State University.
After passing through the city (and the offices of the Sheltowee Trace Association at the Morehead Conference Center) the trail crosses US 60, winds through a neighborhood and then continues up a valley before climbing up to meet Big Limestone Trail #109
on top of the ridge.
