Amazing trail to hike and camp on. There are so many different kinds of landscape and geological formations on this trail. Just completed it on Saturday afternoon and it took about 2 days at a comfortable pace. We collected drinking water from from the clean pools at the base of the waterfall closest to Bark Camp
Shelter using iodine tablets and it wasn't half bad. Definitely bring more water than you think you'll need. I packed in 2 gallons and it wasn't nearly enough. Get in touch with the folks at the DuPont Lodge ahead of time to schedule a return shuttle or a room for recovery. Definitely would do it again.

One of my favorite places to go! Beautiful and there were so many ferns and beautiful moss everywhere, if you're into that kinda stuff. The falls are remarkably beautiful.

This was my first taste of the Sheltowee and I was hooked. We started at Holly Bay and took out at Cumberland Falls. Bark Camp creek and Dog Slaughter was well worth the wait. We were there during hickory chicken season, and they were all over the place. Also if your big on Spoonbill, bring your pole because the trail runs parallel with the Cumberland River and they have some lunkers! Awesome hike for beginners!

Hiked point to point sections from Cumberland Falls area through DBNF to Dog Slaughter Falls to Bark Camp Shelter to Bark Camp Cascades to Mouth of Laurel Boat Ramp to Laurel Lake Dam to Holly Bay Marina to Vanhook Falls in Laurel County. Approximately 18 to 20 miles. Mostly Easy to Moderate depending on weather conditions.
