Description

Turkeypen is one of those must-run trails in order to connect the Black Mountain Trail with the South Mills and Turkeypen area. It's also a must-run trail because it's rougher, out-there, and extremely fun. To run this as an out-and-back start at the Turkeypen Gap Trailhead. The trail climbs consistently with a tough steep climb 1 mile in.
