Description

The western half of this trail (beyond the radio towers) is downhill only. Begin by taking the connector trail across the paved road from the gate near Intersection #8*.

The connector takes you to a paved road and the last 100+ yards of your ascent will be on pavement. Look for the trail on your left just before the towers. The descent starts off with a stone steps section that most riders will walk down - proceed with caution! The remainder of the descent is a steep, old-school brake-burner of a downhill with several switchbacks.

After crossing the paved road, the trail remains steep until connecting to a doubletrack section where you'll bear left and ride up a few rolling hills on your way to the Family Campground. Beyond this portion, the next section of Lost Turkey from the Family Campground to Monument road is a steep doubletrack that is rarely ridden. Most riders will want to continue on the Chappells Field - Campground Bypass to Chappells Field Trail.

*For intersection #'s reference the Blue Knob State Park Map.

Great primitive singletrack. The stone steps were fun. Brakes get HOT.

The section after Blue Knob was very washed out but was still rideable
