Great for taking your dog off-leash.

Comments: Took our new pooch Max and one veteran Jerry to Turkey Creek Trail, our first visit. Along with the two dogs were my two children and one of their friends, my wife and I. It's not a long or challenging trail, but frankly a very nice one that s close by us. Max finally learned not to be scared of the water and now loves getting in creeks. We rounded out our day with some swimming at Emma Long Metropolitan Park ($10 per vehicle) then some grub at Ski Shores - all very dog-friendly places.
