Turkey Creek Professional Review and Guide
"A backpack from Happy Valley to the Deer Head Spring trail. This trail climbs the eastern side of the Rincon Mountains, providing the shortest route to Manning Camp and the Mica Mountain Complex. This trail climbs the eastern side of the Rincon Mountains, providing the shortest route to Manning Camp and the Mica Mountain Complex. It is the only trail open to horses that provides access from the eastern side of the range. The entire length of the trail was burned during the Rincon Mountain fire of 1994, and the vegetation is now recovering. The trail is easy to follow for most of its length but is tricky to locate near the top as it passes through lightly burned country. The trek begins on a two-rut jeep trail that climbs straight up a finger ridge from the Turkey Creek parking area."
