Description
This trail links off of the same Forest Service Rd. that the Gem Mine trail links from. Keep climbing past the Gem Mine Trailhead until Forest Service Rd. ends in a meadow. Continue straight and you'll see two yellow blazed singletrack trails on the left.

Trail start is the second yellow blazed trail to the left after you ride up a short steep red clay rise. The trail is completely rideable with some rugged and technical sections. Turkey Feathers puts you on the other side of the ridge from the Gem Mine Trail. Trail ends on a blue and white blazed trail.

Going right leads to the Boone Fork FS Campground. There is a lot more to explore in this area, so stay tuned for more trails!
