Description

Big Cove Turnpike starts off of Monte Sano Blvd and dead ends at a ravine less than a 1/2 mile later. It is a flat course that features a vertical shaft cave just off the trail that is marked by a stack of rocks and a red piece of rope tied to a nearby tree. It also provides access to the Old Wagon Road and Discovery Trail.
