How long did the shuttle take?
I'm wanting to lead this trip with the Central Kentucky Backpackers meetup sometime this spring. How many can stay at the shelter? Are there any sites for tents close? I'm wanting to bring 6-8.Can you extend the mileage on the front side of the trip?
How many miles is it from Nashville, Tn.?
Thanks for the report. I backpacked the Sheltowee Trace in this area during summer and had a different experience. We initially planned to camp at the Star Creek Shelter but the trail right around there was very hot and muggy. This was because there are a few sections of trail where the trees are blown over and thick patches of weeds and pricker bushes have grown up. The shelter was in the middle of it all and it was the last place we wanted to be. Other parts of the trail were cool and shady though. We ended up camping right along next to the river with easy access to plenty of driftwood to burn.The Bark Camp Cascades are really cool. I would love to hike up that creek as well as some of the other creeks in that area.
