The Turkey Oak Trail is one of two hikes featured in Cheraw State Park, located near Cheraw, South Carolina (see also the Cheraw Nature Trail for more information on this wilderness). The Turkey Oak Trail is one of the newest hiking trails in the state, and is an extension of the Cheraw Nature Trail. The 4-mile loop hike starts at the parking area and is profiled here in a counterclockwise direction. Along the way there is a short spur trail leading to the Red-Cockaded Woodpecker Area, a worthwhile side trip if time is available. Otherwise, continue to meet up with the white-blazed Turkey Oak Trail and begin a 2-mile loop that turns down toward Eureka Lake, then switches back to the north to meet up again with the Cheraw Nature Trail. To hike to Eureka Lake, look for a bench along the Turkey Oak Trail.
