Turkey Run Trails #2 through #11 are a maze of short interconnected trails taking you through the most spectacular terrain in the state. In total you traverse 11 miles of wooded terrain full of deep ravines, ridge tops, hiking through waterfalls and climbing ladders as you make your way through the landscape. The trails range from .5 miles in length to 2 miles in length. An additional trail, #1, is three miles and is perhaps the most scenic of all the trails. In reality, if you hiked all the trails you would hike far more than the 11 miles because of the interconnectivity and the cross over of the trails. The whole area is very scenic and unique. There are numerous ladders and steps built for erosion control and to aid the visitors ability to see all the remote areas. The area is a great introduction to hiking for kids because of the varied length of the trails and the remarkable beauty of the area.
