Laurel Lake is what you'll find down near Lodon. The sheltowee is part of that trail system but there is off shoots of other trails. Your best bet is to head over to ICS and talk to Scott Irons. He'll probably have maps or he'll draw something up. Locally, VBR will be leaf covered and probably hold up better (it gets no traffic). Also, you can ride the gravel roads down near Hickory (close to Nebo) to keep the legs going.
