    Default Sheltowee Trace - Thru hikers / End to End Hikers

    In addition to 10K who is going North to South now, we have two ladies (Michelle and Stephanie) and another young man heading north bound this week. We also have two monthly section hikes of the Trace for those who want to do the End - 2 - End of the Trace one month at a time. At this point we have 60 registered for these section hikes with about 45 now having completed the first two sections. More info on the webpage www.sheltoweetrace.org .

    If time allows, after finishing the PT(in about 10 days), then the BMT, I'm headed to the ST for a NOBO thru-hike.

    I shuttled 10-K for his Sheltowee hike. Can't guarantee my availability but PM me if you need a shuttle for your thruhike.

    TABA's guide was written based on his thruhiking the Trace about 2 1/2 years ago. It's available from the STA Trading Post here. I encourage you to peruse the website for other info on the Trace including maps.

    If you want to hike "soon," I suggest starting in the next 1-3 weeks because the Trace is at its best before the leaves come out so that you can see all the rock formations more easily. I day-hiked 6 miles along the Big South Fork today and the wildflowers are already starting.

    I can shuttle you for a thruhike or major section hike provided I have no schedule conflicts.

    From today's hike:

    Just a curious question. What is the PT you are refering to here? I just finished a thru-hike of the Palmetto Trail and wrote a Thru-Hiker's Manual for the Palmetto Trail. My guess is the PT you refer to here is the Pinhoti Trail.
