Travel the Sheltowee Trace, a 269-mile multiple-use national recreation trail that traverses the length of the Daniel Boone National Forest. The trail is named in honor of Daniel Boone. Sheltowee (meaning Big Turtle) was the name given Boone when he was adopted into the Shawnee tribe as the son of the great war chief Blackfish. Boone made several explorations through the area that is now the Daniel Boone National Forest, in search of a route from Virginia to Kentucky. Today many of the creeks, streams and landmarks bear the names given to them by "Sheltowee."
