“A 2 mile trail connecting Bommer Canyon to the upper ridge and Community Trail.”

Loose rock and gravel on steep slopes may make for unreliable footing.
Turtle Ridge Trail starts at the intersection with Bommer Pass Trail which leads northwest, and West Fork Trail which leads south. The trail heads south before turning east and ascending up a steeper slope via numerous switchbacks. The highest point of the trail is reached at 1.1 miles and it immediately starts to descend down toward Turtle Ridge community and the community paths.
