Description

Turkey Springs Trail technically begins a short distance south of the trailhead at Turkey Springs because it shares a short distance with a motorized trail at the beginning.

Once departed from the motorized trail, Turkey Springs Trail generally parallels Turkey Springs Road as it wanders through Pine forest, touches occasional exposed rock surface, enters a meadow here and there, and brushes the Aspens.

This trail accesses Catamount, Park Ave, and Gopher and is roughly the highest trail in the Turkey Springs network, so it's all downhill and swooping from here!
