Turkey Creek Trail (South) Professional Review and Guide
"Come ride the banks of Turkey and Steven’s creeks. Much of the time, this shaded trail follows the bluff just above the water; occasionally, the trail leaves the river to explore a cove or climb a small ridge. Swimming holes along the broad, slow-moving rivers invite the summer visitor. The forest consists of large hardwood trees and little undergrowth; cypress and oak grow at the river’s edge. In addition to great scenery, Turkey Creek’s excellent singletrack serves up some fun technical moves.
You’ll encounter a dozen wooden bridges, many that require a pop-a-wheelie on the approach. Enjoy tight switchbacks, log jumps, a set of whoop-dee-do’s, and several wet crossings. Unfortunately, the trail is in need of some repair. One bridge was out when I rode Turkey Creek, and the last 2 miles were overgrown in places. Nevertheless, the trail deserves two thumbs up! Note: Many riders make a loop by following a network of Forest Service roads back to Key Bridge. Contact the Long Cane Ranger District of Sumter National Forest for a map of the area.
