“A wide, easy dirt road that is sun-exposed at the bottom, then mostly tree-covered at the top.”— Dave Gregg
From the big tree to the top, it's a pleasant, mostly tree-covered road that gets much less traffic. Most visitors to Turnbull don't even know there's a trail up this way.
When the dirt road exits the trees, turning sharply left and uphill, there's an uphill singletrack split on the right, Turnbull Canyon Trail (Singletrack). According to area maps, this is actually the same trail but the change of trail-type and difficulty I think warrants separation.
