Description

Newt Jack trail begins where Newt Jack road ends. The road once continued where the trail is now, so it is a rocky, eroded, bouncy ride compared to the majority of the Turkey Springs network. One might call it the little brother of Powerline.

A good bail-out from the outer loop or Round Park Ave, Newt Jack heads back to the trailhead at "Gate 5" by Upper Rim. Otherwise, most riders use it merely as a connector, choosing the more enjoyable singetrack options in the area.

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

Typical Newt Jack trail.  Rocky, but not really technical.  Good trail if you just want to test shocks or bail on a longer loop.
