Little Shepherd Trail

Search Harlan Kentucky

This trail covers 38 miles between Harlan and Whitesburg. The narrow, half-graveled road (Kentucky Highway 1679) in Kentucky's eastern foothills twists through several scenic overlooks and huge rock out-croppings known locally as 'Hogbacks;' the trail passes through the Kingdom Come State Park and is recommended only for mountain bikers, hikers and four-wheel-drive vehicles. John Fox Jr. protrayed the region in his novel 'The Little Shepherd of Kingdom Come,' published in 1903, the first American novel to sell a million copies.
