This is an easy loop through mixed pine and hardwood forest. You can hike it alone or along with the White Trail
, Yellow Trail
and Purple Trail
in the Boiling Creek Park Trails featured hike. I parked in the parking area at the end of Johnson Trail (road) and headed SSW to get on the Turquoise Trail.
As you hike, you'll see on your left and right where the White Trail
crosses. Just continue straight ahead, and you'll find the first Turquoise blaze in the edge of the woods. The Turquoise Trail is well-marked, and goes almost down to the river. When you hear the sound of the river, duck through the woods a short distance to the river bank.
The Turquoise Trail loops back around and ends at the White Trail
, and you can turn left (NW) to return to the parking area or right (N) to follow the White Trail
, Purple Trail
and Yellow Trail
to make a much longer hike.
Pine and hardwood forest, and the usual small animals and birds.
