Osborne Bend Trail #240, Lost Branch Trail #239 Map

Lost Branch Trail #239 connects the Sheltowee Trace National Recreation Trail with the Osborne Bend Loop Trail. It crosses Gladie Creek before ascending to the junction with Osborne Bend Loop Trail.

There is no trailhead parking for this trail. Hikers must either hike the Sheltowee Trace National Recreation Trail or Osborne Bend Loop Trail to get to this trail.

10/19/2020: The eastbound lanes of the Mountain Parkway between exits 33 and 40 in Powell and Wolfe counties have reopened. Repairs to the sinkhole which developed near the Tunnel Ridge Road overpass at the county line have progressed to the point where one direction of travel has been restored, one day ahead of schedule.

Westbound Mountain Parkway traffic will continue to be diverted off the parkway at Exit 40 and follow a signed detour via northbound KY 15, re-entering at Exit 33. Since a wide load restriction is in effect for a bridge rehabilitation project near milepoint 32, vehicles wider than 11 feet will need to stay on KY 15 between Slade and Stanton, where they can re-enter the parkway at Exit 22. See Press Release.
