Turkey Knob Run

Average Rating:    (1.67 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 6

Right off of the highest point in Greene County. Elevation drop from the top of the trail to the bottom is about 800 feet down. This trail is mostly for downhillers but there is enough trails that cross country riders can enjoy a day here as well. This trail is on state game lands so it is legal to ride. Do not ride on areas that are posted. This trail is one of the best around. It does not have very many rocks in the way but it has many streams running through. 9 out of 10 people will never ride the full trail without wrecking 2 or 3 times.
