Nice trail to a great lookout! Got off trail a couple times but didn't wander too far. There are some great camping spots just off the trail but heads up...looks like they would be really popular in warmer weather. Noticed a couple camp groups setting up as we backed out of the trail a couple hours before sunset...was about 37 degrees. Great hike!

Great trail with a nice overlook at Hanson’s Point. Trail is well marked until the intersection with the Rough Trail and then is mostly unmarked the rest of the way. Trail was ok to follow until clearings where it becomes a bit tough to follow. AllTrails was a big help in those spots

Pinch-Em Tight trail (Sheltowee Trace) is easy to follow with the turtle blaze. Watch out for the hard left exit onto Rough Trail and then hard right onto Hanson’s Point Trail (unmarked). Hanson’s Point Trail is very cool, very intimate, very narrow. It’s easy to lose the trail at the four or so campsites along the way, so beware. Generally stay to the right when heading to HP. The trail can be difficult to follow with the leaf carpet. Spectacular views at HP. Treacherous drop offs along the spine when working your way to the Point, so be extra safe here. I’m sure Don Fig has dragged a few humans that have dared gravity and alcohol out of here...

We loved this trail, but didn’t make it to Hanson’s Point. We’ll go back and make it. I have AT Pro and had downloaded the map, but didn’t really figure out how to use it. So we got on a different trail. But we saw a really cool waterfall and hiked through a lovely forest ecosystem. Then the trail we were on was looking pretty forsaken and we were getting a little late in the day—and I figured out how to get to my downloaded map! Then as we made our way back we saw where we missed our turn. It’s not marked at all. It was a great day and great hike, though. And I love AT Pro.

This was an amazing trail. I am a little biased because I had Hanson’s Point all to myself. But Pinch-em Tight was a nice trail that offered glimpses of the view as you hiked along. Finding the Hanson’s point Trail was fairly easy, I do have the pro version of the app so I was able to make sure I was following the trail. When I was hiking there were small pink ribbons marking the trail. The only time I really needed the GPS was the two or three back country campground areas where the trail was lost (mostly because leaves are covering the whole area) but if you are patient you can find the trail again. The view from Hanson’s point was awesome.
