The Turk Gap Trail is an old road that is now a yellow-blazed trail, mostly used by horses. It starts on the north side of Skyline Drive at the Turk Mountain Trailhead and immediately heads into the woods. The trail descends steadily but gradually all the way to the boundary of the park where it ends at Crimora Lake Lane.
