Sheltowee Trace NRT - Northern Terminus to Cave Run Lake is a 36.5 mile moderately trafficked point-to-point trail located near Morehead, KY that features a waterfall and is rated as difficult. The trail offers a number of activity options and is accessible from March until October.
This is the first 37 miles of the Sheltowee Trace NRT starting from the Northern Terminus heading south to Cave Run Lake. This section of the trail mostly leads across ridge tops. The trail goes down Main St through the town of Morehead. The end of this section hike ends just after crossing the dam at Cave Run Lake.
Did a portion of this trail in the springtime.
This is a section hike of the Sheltowee Trace. I have mapped it out after carefully studying multiple maps. I will be backpacking this section in a couple of weeks (Memorial Day Weekend) and will bring a copy of this map along with a map I purchased to reference and take notes. I will also record my trip and update this map upon completing the hike with any necessary changes and a follow-up review. I will do this for each section of the trail while trying to stay between 30-40 miles per each section. This will create a multitude of 3-day trips for those who may want to hike the Sheltowee Trace in sections.
