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.

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.

Not many woopdy-doos . A lot of long flowing up and long flowing down . Some places ride the top of the mountain ridges . Very nice trail for taking people who want to take beginner to the next level . Good legs and a strong heart required . A good bike with respectable components will help everyone have a enjoyable ride . NO WALLY BIKES !

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.

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.

Customer Service

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.

Great trail. I like it as much as Wine Creek but it doesn't have the technical bits that Wine Creek does at the beginning. It's a bit longer (7.5 miles). My only complaint is lack of access to a "real" parking lot. The end of the trail just sort of stops at a Forest Service road. Not as accessible as Wine Creek, with it's parking lot.

Park at the junction of Wine Creek and Turkey Creek on Key Rd.

I was part of a SORBA-CSRA work party this weekend at Turkey Creek. The entire trail, 7.5 miles, was mowed with DR mowers and lopped to remove low hanging limbs. We rode afterwards and this trail rocks. It is incredibly fast and just plain fun. This trail will allow you to work yourself however you want. You can cruise at a leisurely pace or pedal like mad and get your heartrate up. There are a few more roots exposed due to the monsoon rains this spring/summer so it's not as smooth as it used to be, but if you pick the right lines, there shouldn't be a problem. One word of caution, check the parking area around Key bridge before you pull in. Some idiot threw about 5 pounds of roofing nails out. We spent about 20 minutes trying to pick them up. This is WMA land, so hunting is allowed everyday but Sunday. Therefore, the best time to ride is Sunday for the rest of the year.

Park at Key Bridge, ride out and back.

This trail has now been opened up all the way to 7.5 miles. After the 5.5 mark, continue to the left (you will see the white blaze), across power lines, to gravel road. The initial part is still a little overgrown, but it opens up nicely. You can turn around and backtrack or, if you like, at the gravel cul de sac, take the gravel road to T, take a right, then stay on left fork to the end. Ride over the burm on left side of culde sac and take trail back to original trail. You will be at the 3.5 mile mark. Take a left and head back to the car. Nice 13.5 mile loop.

This is the best trail I have ever ridden and sections range from begineer to expert - depending how much you want to walk. One complete lap is a days ride and will wear you out. You can actually cross a large river and extend your ride on a section called Steven's creek to really smoke your bags. It's worth the trip.

Great trail. Plenty of technical stuff to practice on. Beautiful scenery. Wish it wasn't so far from my house. Nice creek crossings, log jumps, and switchbacks. Watch a couple of the ridges you ride on--almost got tossed over one, and it was a hell of a drop. Not to physically challenging in terms of endurance. My wife has ridden it and survived.

Customer Service

From Lexington--take HWY 1 to 21. Keep going until you cross the old bridge, it's on your right.

Harbison State Forest (Columbia)--stays too busy, though. Sesqui state park--not real challenging, but good for beginners and for a light ride that gives you a change of pace.
