Description

Turkey Creek is often overshadowed by the nearby Forks Area Trail System (FATS). FATS has fantastic looping trails and is closer to most urban centers; however, Turkey Creek is a nice trail in its own right. It is not a particularly technical trail - the singletrack tends to be easier than the nearby Modoc, with the major gully crossings having bridges. A front suspension mountain bike is perfect for this trail. An experienced ride could even ride this trail with a cyclocross or gravel bike, though the exposed roots and rocks would make it a rough ride.

Keep your eyes out for wild boar - the signs warn of an active trapping program. In the spring, you can see wild boar mothers with their young in this area.

This trail starts on Key Road, just west of the junction with Wine Creek #280. The forest service actually refers to these two trail as one long Wine-Turkey Creek Trail. The trail is clearly blazed and has mile markers. The trail is well maintained, though not as busy as other local trails (FATS and Modoc).

It can be ridden as an out-an-back for a total of fourteen miles. However, the gravel forest service roads allow you to ride this as a lollipop - the forest service road begins a hundred yards (meters) after mile marker 7. The forest service road is easier and cuts through a large pine forest.
