The trail begins at the Shallow Flats Wildlife Viewing Area and ends at the Sheltowee Trace National Recreation Trail north of the Forest Service Visitor Center. The trail begins uphill and ends downhill, making the hike more difficult, but the scenery is worth it.
The Sheltowee Trace National Recreation Trail can be used to reach the Cumberland Ranger District office and visitor center or the Big Limestone Trail.
