Turkey Creek Trail - 2/11/2005  [View Log Page]
Rating: N/A Difficulty: 1star Solitude: 1star
Distance: 2.50 Miles Duration: N/A
We try to get out to Turkey Creek Trail at least once a week. It gets a bit crowded on weekends, but if you're fortunate enough to make it on a weekday afternoon, the solitude rating goes off the scale. The trail itself got a little trashed during the heavy rains of last November (more on that later) but now is, for the most part, easily passable. Regarding heavy rain--if it's sprinkling, hit the trail. However, if there are more than 2 or 3 inches of rainfall in the area in the day(s) preceeding your walk, you're going to get soaked,repeatedly,crossing the creek. And heads up: if there's been more rain than that, you might experience significant difficulty fording the creek in certain areas! The creek is gorgeous, with clear, pristine green-blue pools dotting the route. There are many places (on creek and off) to stop for a break. Wade, read, write, snack, fetch, sit, stay, whatever. If you've got a dog or two or ten, bring him/her/them. This is a superbly dog-friendly trail. If you run into anyone, they're probably going to be accompanied by well-adjusted, well-behaved canines on- and/or off- leash. We applaud the two-legged and four-legged users of Turkey Creek Trail that we've crossed paths with to date. Everyone seems to be courteous, friendly, and enjoying themselves. They are a credit to hikers just as Turkey Creek is a credit to area trails.
