Turkey Creek Trail

Turkey Creek Trail Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Wildlife and a scenic creek await you on the Turkey Creek Trail. Day hike the first few miles, or make it a four- to five-day backpack on the entire trail, the longest in this part of the wilderness.

After signing in at the trail register, begin the gradual descent via Turkey Creek Trail 580 to a gate at 0.6 mile. After passing through this gate, be sure to close it. Soon after you’ll begin climbing an easy-to-moderate grade. After 0.8 mile you’ll have to cross an irrigation canal via a wooden plank bridge."
