In contrast to Turkey Trail (South), this singletrack, which follows Turkey Creek north of Key Bridge, has seen better days. This ghost of a trail begins in great condition, but within the first mile it becomes challenging at times to follow the white blazes. Sections are overgrown, briars encroach the path, and high water has moved or mangled many of the dozen footbridges. The good news? Recently the Forest Service received funds to return the trail to its former glory. Soon you will be able to ride this beautiful riverside trail, which travels through open bottomland and on the slopes of the river’s floodplain. Large grapevines line the trail and cypress and oak grow along the riverbank. When the project is complete, you will be able to add this section to Turkey Creek Trail (South) for a total of 12.2 miles of singletrack. Contact Augusta Freewheelers for updates, or better yet volunteer to help with the improvements. Tread: Singletrack.
