Anglin Falls

Although it's obvious by the eroded rock formation, that water once fell forcefully off Anglin Falls, today weather conditions determine the flow of water coming down from the rocks. Located in John B. Stephenson Memorial Forest, this rich wooded ravine is open to the public for hiking, bird watching and nature studying. It is about a 3/4 mile hike, sometimes steep climbing, from the parking area to the falls. I-75 exit 62. US 25 to 1786 then left onto 1787 which turns into Hammond Fork Road. Go approximately 1 1/2 to 2 miles and turn right onto Anglin Fork Road (paved then gravel). Go .8 mile and turn left and then .2 miles to trail entrance.

Sheltowee Trace

Climbing between deep hemlock gorges and piney, craggy summits, the Sheltowee Trace is a 319-mile National Recreation Trail (2015 alignment) that spans the Daniel Boone National Forest and Big South Fork National River and Recreation Area in Kentucky and Tennessee. The name "Sheltowee" honors the history of Daniel Boone, who was captured by Shawnee Indians while making salt in an area close to the present-day trail. Chief Blackfish, his adopted Shawnee father, renamed him Sheltowee, which meant "Big Turtle."
