Trail Overview

Little Shepherd is an unpaved route from Harlan KY to Cumberland KY. This route rides across a mountain ridge giving you wonderful views of the surrounding areas. There are multiple pull-offs that function as overlooks to take in the scenery. This trail is stock 4x4 capable, but keep an eye out for blown-out holes. A couple of them are pretty deep. The worst ones all have go-arounds, but they can sneak up on you if you're not on the lookout. The ruts towards the end may require some line choice if your rig lacks some decent ground clearance. There is a great overlook in Kingdom Come State Park at the Cumberland end of the route.


Deep holes can catch you off guard. Some ruts could catch a running board on a stock rig with poor line choice.
