A connector trail that loops the end of Turkey Feathers back to the Gem Mine Forest Service Rd.

Shawn Moore

Description

Yield to horses.
At the end of the Turkey Feathers trail, turn left and follow the blue/white blazed trail/roadbed. This trail has lots of very cool waterfalls and streams and is a lot of fun. At one point, Rhododendrons and small Pines overlap the trail making for a crazy, blind bit of riding as you get up close and personal with the local flora.

A 1/4 mile bike push section leads to a junction with a green/yellow blazed trail to the right. Continue riding left on the blue/white blazed trail to an intersection with the yellow blazed trail. Go left on the yellow blazed trail and its unfortunate 1/4 mile bike push section.

Look for a green/blue blazed trail on the right and take it! The green/blue blazed trail is a super fun, technical, decent pucker factor downhill trail that will definitely put a smile on your face. Trail ends on the Spencer Branch Forest Service Rd. that will take you back to the parking area.
