Turkey Trot Trail is 1.87 miles out and back, but the turn around point is a junction with Castle Trail which can be used to make it a loop. It is located near Morrison, Colorado and features views of Denver, Red Rocks Amphitheater, and wildlife. It is a relatively easy hike and is exclusively use
There may not be any aspens around changing color, but there's still some nice views.
Easy access but super busy. Great for mountain biking!!
Nice loop trail with great views all around. Take turkey trot trail on the right if looking for a more gradual ascent and not as much traffic. Clearly popular in the morning, but parking lot was less than half full after noon. The return leg is on the lower half of the castle trail.
Did this loop plus the Castle Trail and the Walker's Dream Trail to the summer White House for a total of 6mi and 1,650 ft of elevation gain. Excellent views in all directions, and the trails are well marked and well maintained.
Surprisingly vigorous when paired with the Castle Trail. Be wary of the high number of hikers on weekend mornings.
Beautiful hike with breath taking views of Red Rocks and Denver! Great first hike of the year!
My wife and I did the Turkey Trot Trail, but we took the Castle Trail back making this a loop. It was a great first hike of the year for us. We enjoyed the amazing views of Denver and Red Rocks Amphitheater. We also saw a deer laying in the grass just off the trail.
