“A good trail with technical sections and a great summit with panoramic views.”— Bryan Gagner
There are no trail markers, so pay attention to the map and your location to stay on the right path (there are some side routes that will take you to the dim weeds). Four wheelers and side-bys use this trail frequently as it is a shared trail. They are always friendly and often amazed to find that you are hiking.
At ~3.75 miles (~6 km) there is a fork in the trail, you can go either way as they re-join quickly. Just after the trails join up again there is a left, over a small bedrock rise that is a bogus trail. Make a right at this section! The trails continues through mixed hardwoods with a gradual climb.
Once you get close to the summit of Turtle Mountain, you are faced with a very steep, but short climb on smooth granite ledges. The view is awesome with Turtle Lake below to the south and The Bay of Fundy in the distance.
