“A gentle ascent trough the northwest Turkey Springs Trail System.”
— Robert Stump
This trail system is open to all non-motorized users. Please stay alert while on the trails and be respectful of other users.
Cattle, horses, and wildlife are present in the area. Temporary trail closures can be expected from time to time. Keep all gates closed.
Where Catamount Trail
takes a sharp right to the north, this trail continues straight toward the northwest. It gently and consistently climbs through pine forest to connect with Turkey Springs Trail. Either direction at Turkey Springs Trail can create a loop with consistent descents over long distances.
This is a main trail on the Turkey Springs Outer Loop. Avoiding this trail and staying on Catamount Trail
will add nearly four miles to the Turkey Springs Outer Loop for those hearty souls who like mileages in multiples of ten (in this case, 20 total).
Caution - this trail crosses Newt Jack Road (FS 923) which also serves as a connector for a couple ATV trails in the area.
