Summary:
Classic undulating cross country single track.
It's an out-and-back. 7.5m one way.
This trail is in as good of shape as it's ever been.
There are almost no jumps. Only maybe 2 spots where you can get your wheels off the ground if you try. No big downhills or uphills. A couple tight switchbacks and some fast narrow track near the creek are as technical as it gets. Suitable for any level rider with good brake control.
Good option when other trails are wet cuz of the leaf cover and not as many people ride this one.
I'd rate it 5 stars if it had some bigger downhills and jumps.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Wine creek is across key road from Turkey. There's access to both ends of Turkey and Wine so you can park at one end and ride both out and back (25miles) or park in the middle and ride each one separately.

Summary:
Rode this one just before I came home from my two day trip. I wound up being a human spider and tick. I was thinking that I was the first person that rode this trail in a long time because of all the spider webs I was breaking. Trail would have been a hell of a lot more fun but I hate spiders (had a tarantula climb up my leg a few years back). Not sure if this is an out and back or a loop. After about 35 minutes of riding I came across a downed tree that looked like it was there for a while. I saw a trail on the other side buthad felt that I rode about 4 or 5 miles my computer was on my other bike so I'm not sure. So, I turned around and headed back. It was still an enjoyable trail except for the webs and ticks I encountered. After I got back to the trail head. A few other riders showed up to ride there. I guess they were waiting for me to break all the webs. Still an enjoyable trail. The directions in here say you drive on 23 for about 4 miles to Key Rd. It's closer to 6 but still pretty easy to find.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
When I'm back up there....most definitely the FATS system.

Summary:
Nice trail with great views, can't wait to go back and ride it in the fall. Nothing very difficult, a few small climbs, most of the creeks have bridges over them. Nice lenght, I think its about 14 miles out and back. The trail follow along bluffs looking over some big creeks.

Recommended Route:
Start at the brige, go to the end, turn around and come back, thats about all you can do as far as I can tell.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
K3, Harbison
