“A short, easy segment of the Sheltowee Trace.”
— Brian Smith
This short portion of the Sheltowee Trace NRT links the Yamacraw Bridge to Rock Creek.
This trail travels along the western bank of the Big South Fork River from Yamacraw Bridge to Rock Creek. The ballast-filled concrete arch railroad that spans the Big South Fork River at the entrance to Rock Creek was the largest of its type in the south when it was built in 1907. This bridge connected the small communities along Rock Creek with the main coal offices in Stearns, KY. If you choose to head out this railroad, use extreme caution.
