my best friend and I are section hiking the sheltowee this year. from what we've experienced, and talking to others who have hiked it's full length, the first 20 miles are the hardest. the first time we were out we hiked the northern terminus to dry branch road which is section 1-2. the next go will be next week and we hope to knock out the next half of the hardest miles. we were very disappointed by how many broads there were. it made finding a spot to camp, but the trail was easy to follow, challenging, beautiful and just our pace. it's also nice that there's not much traffic, but the trails are well maintained.
