The information presented here completely misses the mark for someone who wants to reach Carrington Rock, and needs to be corrected. At the closest point reached by the track shown, Carrington Rock is still 1.7 air miles to the SW on the border between Bath and Menifee Counties. Also, be aware that he track presented for this hike starts at an unmarked point from the Clear Creek Campground. It involves a half mile bushwhack start across a creek and up a confusing, poison-ivy-infested, difficult-to-navigate slope to intersect with the Sheltowee Trace, which is what the track is on for the remander of the hike. Best by far to start at the point where the Sheltowee crosses the creek at the Clear Creek Picnic Area (back down the road, with a bridge across the creek). It's a nice hike if you start at the picnic area, but it doesn't begin to come close to Carrington Rock. I've uploaded a track that starts at the Carrington Greens Golf Course and reaches the summit along a nice multi-use trail (TH is at 38.026520, -83.624976).
