Description

This main trail through Turkey Springs connects many of the other trails in the area, making the possibilities for loops nearly endless. The trail traverses mainly Pine forest, passing by an occasional pond and wanders through an occasional aspen grove.

Catamount boasts a gentle grade from one end to the other and avoids old doubletrack and rock for the majority. It begins at Powerline and connects Boulder, Round Park and Creek in the south. It shares a brief roll on rocky doubletrack with Newt Jack before continuing north on singletrack to connect with Park Ave and the namesake Turkey Springs.

This trail is just far enough away that cows and other bicycles are the typical encounter, with hikers and runners being more rare.

The boulder on Boulder Trail, as though it mysteriously rolled there from a hundred miles away.

These ponds, or "reservoirs" are typical throughout the Turkey Springs area.  This smooth singletrack is also typical.

This part was a little too rocky for our group. Great trails.

Winter snow transforms this trail to a mecca of frozen streams and fields of snow pillows.

Wildflowers abound along the flowing, smooth singletrack of Turkey Springs.

A seldom-encountered bit of "hardsurfacing" in the Turkey Springs network.
