Day Hikes with the CRLC
HIKE THE TRACE IN ROWAN AND BATH/MENIFEE COUNTIES
The Cave Run Lake Chapter of the Sheltowee Trace Association (STA) and Bath County Tourism each year organize a series of day hikes to cover the length of the Trace in the counties we maintain.
Hikes will be offered starting in January and ending in May each year. We will alternate between the series that covers Rowan County and the series that covers Bath and Menifee Counties.
Proceeds from hike fees benefit the Sheltowee Trace Association – Cave Run Lake Chapter for trail maintenance, trail equipment purchases and food/water for volunteers.
In 2018, we will offer a Bath/Menifee series of hikes. Look for more information to be posted here.
OTHER ORGANIZED HIKES
We will offer occasional day hikes on the Sheltowee in our area, loop hikes that include the Sheltowee, and overnight backpacking trips in the fall. Individuals and groups are welcome to participate in our planned hikes or contact us for help to set one up. Go to the Day Hikes page for current offerings.
