“A classic singletrack trail through the forest and across small creeks.”— Christopher Rorden
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.
