The eastern portion starts at SR 78 northeast of Burr Oak Lake and goes into the Wayne National Forest. Eventually the trail follows the Burr Oak shoreline leaving the Burr Oak area to go through the Wayne National Forest.
Public camp grounds are available at Burr Oak boat docks three and two (boat dock one is a picnic area only). The Wayne National Forest area trail is mostly off road until you reach the Logan, Ohio area then it follows country roads until the section ends at SR 664, four miles northwest of Logan Ohio. Rolling wooded hills with numerous streams to cross, and much beaver activity are in the Wayne National Forest area. Deer, turkey and other animals can be seen on this hike. During the summer months most of the streams are dry, so pack in your water supply.
Shawnee, Ohio hosts the only restaurant and is near to the trail at Tecumsey Lake. Camping in the Wayne National Forest is permitted, but primitive no trace. A small store for minimal resupply is available in nearby New Straitsville or Murray City.
