Description
Waypoints (3)

This is an extension of the popular 45 mile Knobstone Trail. In the south it follow the first 45 miles of the original Knobstone Trail. Then there is the Pioneer Trail consisting of 39 miles connecting Spurgeon Hollow (KT mile 45) to the Hoosier National Forest). Then five miles of the Pioneer Trail which is on well maintained trail on private easements, the other 34 miles is a scenic road walk on county roads. As of December 2019, 7 miles of this is in the process of being built on private easements. The Hoosier National Forest section has 28 miles of trails with brief road walks connecting to the Southern terminus of the Tecumseh Trail. The waypoints on this page mark several access trails. All of these trails have a parking lot where cars can be left and are convenient for doing shuttles. The route on this page utilizes the Buffalo Bottoms Road Walk Alt. There is a section that goes on a more northern loop through the Oak Heritage Preserve. This loop requires some walking along roads, and may be extended in the future.

Just be aware that there are lots of dogs on the road walking section from Hickory Ridge through Sparksville and beyond and they will come up close to you and bark at you. None of them tried to attack me, but some made me nervous.

It is not 160 miles long. They have not completed those sections to be able to adjoin the Tecumseh trial. The KT is 45-55 miles long with loops.

First to Review

This is excellent. I’m currently section hiking all 160 miles THANK YOU for this recording. I’m doing a backpacking trip for the southern OG KT at the end of March, and I have 5 more sections of Tecumseh to complete, then it’s on to Pioneer. This map is amazing!!
