    My husband and I completed this trail in 2 days. We started at around 8 AM at the Pioneer Cabin Shelter inside O’Bannon State Park, hiked counter clockwise, and ended at around 3:00 PM the next day. I realize that we should have went clockwise, as all of the shelters are grouped within 12 or so miles on the south east half of the trail and we passed them all on the first day. I thought that was a flaw in the trail design.
    We did cached water on Old Forest Road, which was around the half way mark and very close to where we camped for the night.
    I noticed in earlier reviews that people commented on how rugged and overgrown the trail had been. I found this to be one of the things I like the most about this trail. It truly made the experience more of an “adventure”. There were quite a few downed trees blocking the trail as well as thorn bushes overgrowing the trail. It had rained heavily the week prior to our hike and there were a lot of areas that were muddy and flowing water. I found this trail to be very physically challenging, but I’ll admit that am not in the greatest physical condition.
    The views were a nice change from the corn fields I am used to seeing in Indiana, and we even had a bonus view of the Ohio River when we accidentally took a ½ mile detour near one of the shelters. I posted a pic. We saw some interesting wildlife, including a variety of butterflies, turtles, spiders, and deer.
    On the negative side- I was very disappointed to see all the trash left behind at the shelters from previous hikers. The road access where we cached our water was full of left over plastic bottles and trash that seemed to have been accumulating for quite a long time. It breaks my heart to see that kind of negligence.
