This is my second log of the Turkey Creek Trail and covers the section from Gore Store Road to the Kirby Nature Trail outer loop.  It also includes the Sandhill Loop.

The Sandhill Loop was very well-maintained and the signage in this area was good, but the Turkey Creek Trail was a different story.  There were a lot of fallen trees and sporadic direction markers.  The distance markers were non-existent.  Some fallen trees you could walk over or around, but others completely blocked the trail and forced you to bushwhack.

The trail does afford you some great views of Turkey Creek, however.
