This is the second of three sections in the Cumberland District on the Sheltowee Trace Trail starting from Cave Run Lake and ending at the suspension bridge in the Red River Gorge.

Be prepared for some road waking on this section. Between coming up out of Red River Gorge and old beaver road is mostly blacktop.
The Red River section passes by Indian Arch and Staircase. On the Northern side is Furnace Arch and Clear Creek Furnace. All points of interest.
Plenty of camping spots along the trail.
