I will say this area is remote, and this section of the sheltowee trace is overgrown a bit. It is beautiful, but we managed to lose the trail a few times. We hit the trailhead at turkey foot campground, located at the back driving in. Keep an eye out for the trail, because of the en overgrowth we got side tracked a bit, but a great deal of it follows the river. I would rate this trail as more difficult than moderate.
