The Turkey Ridge Loop is a hiking and mountain biking trail that offers a nice middle-ring climb followed by a fun downhill through mixed pine and hardwood forest.
At the post and rail fence, begin this twisting, rolling, hiking/biking, single track, dirt, loop trail through mixed pine and hardwood forest. Challenges include moderately steep hills, stream fords without footbridges, and sharp curves, and switch-backs. As you pass beneath mixed oak and pine forest, and wind along creeks, watch for a variety of birds, snakes, squirrels, and other wildlife.
Bikers are asked to protect the trails by not riding after recent rain when conditions are wet. Remember to wear insect repellent in warm weather. Pets are permitted on leashes. Restrooms are available at the visitor’s center and clubhouse. If you wish to extend your hike/ride, the Lakeview Trail is nearby.
