Overview

Nearly all the Turkey Mountain trails include rocky, very rocky, technical obstacles, and very technical obstacles. That's great if you're a veteran mountain biker with 20 years of experience, but if you're just starting out that may be way too much.

I swore off mountain biking three or four years ago after attempting a few trails at Turkey Mountain, but after six months running the trails, I realized there were trails I could do and still have fun on. This route minimizes the technical rocky sections and maximizes the fun flowing sections.

Description

This loop is best done counter-clockwise (as mapped). This area has numerous intersecting trails so riding with a GPS or the MTB Project mobile app is almost a requirement if you are new to the area.

From the trailhead, after about 0.2 miles, take a hard left on Unmarked Connector: Yellow to Enchanted Forest Bypass to avoid some rocky sections ahead on the main trail.

At about the 1.0 mile mark, there is a rocky section on Yellow Trail. You may want to walk your bike the first time through this section. At about 1.1 miles, take a hard right on Yellow Trail - Hi Chi Connector followed by a hard left 0.1 miles later for a fun flowing singletrack section on Hi Chi.

At about 1.6 miles, veer left onto a small skinny trail off Spider Connector to Pink Trail. A few hundred yards later (at the 1.9-mile mark), there is a steep downhill section on Pink Trail that you may want to walk the first time through. At about 2.3 miles, take a hard right onto the Pink Trail Alternate.

Finally, after about 4.3 miles, look for a hard right into a climb on Fairy Dust - Pipeline Bypass with a short steep section at the end. Be prepared to unclip and walk the last ten yards. This leads to the Hairpin Connector and the final steady climb on Pink Trail back to the start.
