By 1980, the trail had reached the New Chapel Trailhead, and work on the 9-mile extension to the Leota Trailhead was ready to begin. The section of the trail extension near the Leota Trailhead would be in a backcountry area, a new classification for a part of a state forest where backpack camping in undesignated areas, without any sanitary facilities, would be allowed. Only on early maps is the area titled as such. Ultimately the bulk of the trail construction heading north was done by trail volunteers.

Primitive Backpacking and Camping Despite the many pre-existing camp locations recorded in this book, many of which are technically illegal, according to the Department of Natural Resources all camping must remain on public lands at least 1 mile away from all roads, recreations areas, and trailheads while also remaining out of sight of the trail and all lakes.

The Division of Fish and Wildlife had already owned 310 acres since 1961, including a 47-acre lake. Through steady cooperation and effort, the DNR was able to add 346 acres to the Elk Creek area in 1982. This provided needed property for extending the trail. The pristine land provided hikers and hunters with a variety of ridgetops and bottomlands, creating a perfect wildlife habitat for deer, grouse, and wild turkey. A poem about the area by an unknown author was published in a 1986 bulletin, Fish and Wildlife Restoration in Indiana.
