Lost Turkey Trail

Average Rating:    (2 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 3

Don't do this if you like mountain biking--after an initial, promising section perhaps 1 mile long, it is nothing but a jeep road most of which is flat. There is no challenge here, good route for a family ride as there are no rocks, roots etc. to provide any challenge. Mostly flat but w/ progressive elevation gain. You never know till you try something but anyone who wants technical challenge will be disappointed w/ this offering.

Summary:
The Lost Turkey Trail is closed to bikers at Babcock State Park but the opposite end (Blue Knob State Park) is open to bikers. This is the part you want to ride. It is more technical. The old sections of the Turkey Trail are more singletrack. A fire road runs thru the area now and many people consider the fire road the trail. Venture off the fire road and you will be rewarded. Nothing extreme, but enjoyable cruising.

Summary:
I don't get it. I just saw some guys ride the Lost Turkey trail on OLN, and it looked like about 20 miles of pretty nice singletrack. Not terribly technical, but some decent hills, and a few rocky sections. Is there another Lost Turkey trail?

Recommended Route:
never been.

Summary:
While the previous description is pretty accurate, this is a hiking trail only. We'll just give ourselves more bad publicity if we insist on riding the footpaths.
