Trail shared by Chris Chaney

Another section of mandatory--though scenic and rural--paved hiking along the Sheltowee Trace.

Description

When the Trace intersects KY 52 take a right and go a short distance to a left-hand turn on KY 399. Follow this long and rolling ridge south until the road drops steeply down to the town of Heidelburg. There is a small park on the upstream side of the river bridge.
