From Jamestown, TN, take US 127 north for 2 miles to TN 154. Turn right on TN 154 and follow it for 10 miles. The park entrance will be on your left. Go to ranger station at park entrance for parking instructions. STT starts .25 mile north of park entrance on TN 154. You can also call ahead for parking instructions at (931) 879-5821.

Yamacraw Trailhead:
From Whitley City, KY, take US 27 south a short distance to KY 92. Turn right, and head west on KY 92 for 5.6 miles to the Yamacraw Bridge. Cross over to the west side of the bridge and turn left onto KY 1363 and immediately turn left again to the Yamacraw River Access of the Big South Fork National River.

This section of the Trace offers spectacular natural features amid an everywhere-you-look beauty. The very beginning of the entire trail, at Pickett State Park, starts with a bang. Within one mile, the Sheltowee Trace (ST) passes a waterfall, an arch, and a rockhouse, making its way through the Hidden Passage, the namesake of the path with which the Trace shares treadway along Thompson Creek. The scenery continues with a walk along a cliff line above Thompson Creek, offering rocky vistas, beforedropping to Rock Creek near the boundary of the Big South Fork National River and Recreation Area (BSF). From here, the Trace trails Rock Creek into the Daniel Boone National Forest. Once in the Daniel Boone, Rock Creek becomes a designated Kentucky Wild River, very deserving of its status. Big boulders crowd the stream between deep pools while noisy shoals course beneath a cathedralesque forest.

    I'm not too impressed with this book. The front map has several mistakes which is frustrating. But the Sheltowee has lots of potential.
