Runner Notes

The trail is wide and well maintained in most areas, but water may be a concern so be sure to plan ahead when considering a trail run, especially in the warmer months.

Description

The Kent Creek Trail can be accessed from Turkey Depot or Quitaque Depot. A parking area is available at either end of the trail. A backcountry campsite area is available at Mullen's Rise, approximately halfway between Turkey Depot and Quitaque Depot. Water is available in Turkey Depot and Quitaque Depot, but availability at trailheads and on trail is unreliable so runners and backpackers should plan ahead regarding water needs and pack plenty of water. The trail is open in some areas so wind and sun exposure can be concerns.
