Trail shared by Larry W. Brown

A steady descent from the AT to Moormans River.

Description

The Turk Branch Trail is actually an old road that connects from the AT to the south branch of Moormans River. At its southeastern terminus, it joins the SF Moormans River Road, a fire road that descends from Jarman Gap. It is a steady, although gradual descent the entire way with a few curves thrown in to keep things interesting.

Thanks to Larry W. Brown, for sharing this trail description. If you’re interested in learning more details about great hikes, weather, camping / lodging, wildlife, and scenic drives, check out the comprehensive Guide to Shenandoah National Park.
