“Shelltowee Trace section through the Clifty Wilderness.”— Mike Embry
This is a rugged section along sandstone cliffs, but it offers views of a large number of rock formations, including the Indian Staircase. Before heading out, understand that this is a Federally Designated Wilderness Area which means that there are no facilities or roads and cell service may be non-existent. If you get in trouble, you may be on your own. The reward, however, is a remote and less populated area to explore.
For more information visit the Forest Service website or the Sheltowee Trace Trail website.
