This is a an excellent extended hike. Some terrain is very difficult but some is very easy. The south portion is mostly in the woods and the north section takes you along the banks of Kentucky Lake. Not much to see for the most part but it's a great time in the woods.

Hiked it in June with 30 Boy Scouts. Heat index was 100+. Recommend hiking in early spring or late fall!!

This is a an excellent extended hike. It took us 6 days hiking from South Welcome to North Welcome. Some terrain is very difficult but others are very easy. The south portion is mostly in the woods and the north section takes you along the banks of Kentucky Lake. Not much to see for the most part but it's a great time in the woods.

There are five shelters that adds to the mileage. Typically each shelter is .5 to 1 mile off the main trail.

Awesome trail for backpacking. Loads to see and a lot of variety. The terrain isn't too difficult, but can get kind of muddy. Lots of wildlife too. A must if you are around the area.
