Pyramid Mountain Natural Historical Area: Turkey Mountain Trail Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Try this hike in spring when the buds are bursting open or on a hot summer’s day in almost total shade under a natural canopy of trees. Sturdy shoes are necessary for negotiating the endless boulders and slippery areas.

Before starting the hike, stop in at the visitor center to pick up a map of the trails, check out the interesting exhibits, and ask for a calendar of events. The land you’ll be hiking on was used as a hunting, fishing, and gathering site by Native Americans for more than ten thousand years. Many explorers followed, and evidence of their presence can be seen when walking past surveyor’s stones and stone walls that marked homestead farms and woodlot boundaries."

The trails on the Turkey Mountain side are mostly woods roads and not as rugged or scenic as the Pyramid Mountain side. For that reason, when the park is packed with hikers (and it is on nice weekends), Turkey Mountain is a nice getaway from the crowds.
