Please stay on existing trails at Turkey. If you see one that has been covered in brush and downed trees, it is closed. Trails are closed to help recover lost habitat and prevent major erosion for ill-designed rogue trails that cause nothing but harm to Turkey Mountain. Sure, it might save you a couple of feet of walking or running but the damage it causes to loss of topsoil and vegetation is not worth it!
