From Fishing Creek to Bark Camp Creek, an alternate flood route (#100A, 3 miles) is available for use during periods of high water. The flood route follows mostly ridges and Forest Service roads above the cliffline.
The Sheltowee Trace continues by crossing a bridge over Bark Camp Creek, just above the scenic water cascades. A small camping shelter is located a few hundred yards south of the creek. A second shelter is located two miles further south at Star Creek.
The Sheltowee Trace joins a park trail at Cumberland Falls State Resort Park. Several park trails intersect with the Sheltowee Trace, so hikers are advised to obtain a park trail map before hiking this section of trail. State park trails are closed to bicycles, horses and motorized vehicles.
