Decent hike with some nice views. The listing should be changed though. It is no where near Washington, MO. It's in Wildwood, near Rockwood Reservation.
Turkey Ridge Trail is a very well designed hiking trail. Trail switchbacks makes tracking to the ridge top a breeze. Throughly enjoyed my January 2016 walk through the woods. Enjoyed viewing winter birds. Nice view of Hidden Valley Ski Slopes to the Southwest standout with their snow cover. The biggest and most pleasure surprise was NO TRASH! Well done hikers and trail maintainers!! Thanks!
i liked it just fine...i went
early in December so i didnt have to deal with any ticks. yes there is a bit of road noise...but it did not bother me at all. i will be back...i enjoyed the solitude...i did not see anyone else on the trail...and i prefer it that way...
Nice trail with a pretty good incline to get your heart rate up! Good for beginners. In May the area is saturated with ticks so make sure to wear hiking boots with taller socks or even pants if tolerable. My one complaint is that it is right off a busy interstate and it is VERY loud, therefor there is no wildlife. Personally, I was not able to enjoy the natural environment due to the cars whizzing by and loud stereos booming through.
Great for just a nice afternoon hike in the woods to get your energy out. The many hills help to get your body working for a good exercise, especially if you're a little out of shape!
