“A pleasant, mostly shady run to the summit of Turk Mountain.”— Larry W. Brown
The Turk Mountain Trail initially descends into the saddle between Turk Mountain and the main ridge, then climbs gradually to the summit, from which there's a stunning view to west on top of rock talus slope.
Thanks to Larry W. Brown, for sharing this trail description. If you’re interested in learning more details about great runs, weather, camping / lodging, wildlife, and scenic drives, check out the comprehensive Guide to Shenandoah National Park.
