Trail starts at Battery Rock on the Ohio River and ends at Devi's Backbone on the Mississippi River. Great way to experience the Shawnee National Forest in Southern Illinois.

Just to clarify, the trail head no longer starts at Battery Rock. In 2010, the made the E'town spur the new eastern end of the trail. Battery Rock was simply too remote to get to, and vandalism to trail markers made it difficult to navigate. Additionally, the Battery Rock portion of the trail used a lot of roads. Using the E'town gets you into the woods much faster. The worst part of this trail is all the ATV's that illegally use it.

Awesome Trail very scenic and peaceful. Several hills to climb but the views are always worth it.
