Description

This trail is accessible from two spots. 1. From Pass Lake Loop and Ginnett Trail. 2. You can park at a small pullout at the intersection of Campbell Lake Rd., Sharpe Rd., and Heart Lake Rd., then take a left on Donnell Rd. Follow that until you reach the trailhead.

The trail is named in honor of John Tursi, a CCC worker who has worked at/with the park ever since his CCC days. Along the trail are (in order): Red Rock Quarry, Old Miners Cabin, and an old mine. Please respect the age of these historical wonders.

Happy Trails!
