Trail shared by Chris Chaney

Aptly named, the Lakeview Trail offers an amazing hike above Cave Run Lake.

Description

The west end of Lakeview splits off of the Sheltowee Trace on the ridge and traverses east and drops into the valley. From east to west, there is a stout climb to gain the ridge.

This trail can be combined with the Sheltowee Trace and Clack Mountain West Road for a long loop. Lakeview alone from the Sheltowee out and back makes for a nice hike.
