Description

Quakie Spring Trail is included on the official Turkey Springs network map, and wanders off the edge of the map at about the point where it starts to get difficult. The novice may want to turn around at this point.

The hard section is easily identified by its steep descent into a narrow canyon over rocky sections. After crossing the creek bottom the trail mellows out and crosses Devil Creek to meet up with Devil Creek Trail #603, which is more of a horse trail.

For those who like adventure and exploring in the "back country," this is your starting point.

Lightly traveled, so a bit overgrown. Gorgeous through the steep drop into the ravine. 1.1mi
