“A fast trail with little elevation change but a few technical segments.”
— Christopher Rorden
March 9-16, 2018. This trail is closed for controlled fires.
A classic trail that provides nice singletrack along the river and through the forests. While the nearby famous Forks Area Trail System is set up as a series of loops, this trail is an out-and-back with about five miles each way. It ends directly at the trailhead to Turkey Creek #280
, so one can easily combine these two trails for a 24-mile ride. The forest service actually refers to these two trails as one long Wine-!Turkey Creek Trail.
The trail is well-marked, maintained, and flatter than other nearby trails, which is good for beginners and allows advanced cyclists to keep a good pace for the ride. There are a number of exposed roots and rocks, but in general, this is a classic forest singletrack.
