Shawnee State Forest Backpack Trail

The 35.7 miles of the orange-blazed main trail is laid out in a large loop. The loop is bisected by SR125 (north loop and south loop). Both loops are EXTREMELY strenuous and the elevations are steep and provide zero switchbacks. Very challenging trail. Usually a multi-night trip utilizing 7 camps.
