There are many miles of diverse hiking and backpacking trails in the Shawnee National Forest including the 160-mile River to River Trail. Take extra precautions during hunting seasons by wearing bright orange clothing. It is a good idea to carry a compass and map. Forest streams do not meet the safety standards for drinking water. We recommend taking your drinking water with you. National Forest ownership is interspersed with privately-owned lands. Respect the rights of private land owners by staying on public lands. Hikers should yield to equestrians. Moving off the trail to the downhill side and talking with the rider will help keep from startling their horse.
