Description

Turkey Creek is a nice trail in its own right. It is not a particularly technical trail - the singletrack tends to be fairly easy with the major gully crossings having bridges. The exposed roots and rocks make it slightly tricky to navigate in specific areas.

Keep your eyes out for wild boar - the signs warn of an active trapping program. In the spring, you can see wild boar mothers with their young in this area.

This trail starts on Key Road, just west of the junction with Wine Creek #280. The forest service actually refers to these two trails as one long Wine-Turkey Creek Trail. The trail is clearly blazed and has mile markers. The trail is well maintained, though not as busy as other local trails.

It can be done as an out-and-back for a total of fourteen miles. However, nearby gravel forest service roads allow you to run this as a lollipop - the forest service road begins a hundred yards (meters) after mile marker 7. The forest service road is easier and cuts through a large pine forest.
