“This short side trail provides scenic views of the Saltese Flats.”— Carol Christensen
The cut-off to the trail isn't readily apparent, so watch for the small trail sign post along the Uplands Loop. The trail moves about halfway up the draw and terminates, randomly, at a small, scrubby tree.
A small, undeveloped singletrack winds up the hill beyond the tree, but that section of trail is not part of the approved trail system in this area. Please respect conservation efforts, and only remain on sanctioned trails. Several other non-sanctioned social trails connect with Turtle Gulch but should be avoided to reduce erosion and environmental impact on this area.
This is a nice trail to use in maximizing mileage within this area but the Uplands Loop and Summit Loop are by far the more engaging trails to be done in this area.
