    Thanks for sharing. Bit further than some other trails/areas on my to-do list already but definitely one to keep in mind for the future.

    I don't believe this information to be accurate. I think the above chart was made with old data. Last year the Kentucky Trail reroute was opened adding ten miles to the ST. The outrageGIS paper maps have been updated in 2020 but the interactive map has not.

    The distance between Charit Creek Trailhead and Cumberland Falls is now 90 miles according to the 2020 maos not the 74 miles stated above.
