How did we get our name and what does it mean?
Sheltowee Trace Outfitters takes its name from the Sheltowee Trace Trail, a 265-mile footpath that extends from Pickett State Park in TN, northeast through the Daniel Boone National Forest to North of Morehead, KY on KY 377. Sheltowee (translated as "Big Turtle") was the name given to Daniel Boone by the Shawnee when he was adopted into their tribe. Seventeen miles of the Sheltowee Trace run along the shores of the Cumberland River, along the 5-mile canoeing section of the Upper Cumberland and also our summer raft trip. It also runs along the Yamacraw to Alum Ford canoeing section of the Big South Fork.
Sheltowee Trace Outfitters is concessioned by the Kentucky Department of Parks, licensed by the U.S. Forest Service, permitted by the National Park Service and inspected by the U.S. Coast Guard.
