This is NOT A TRAIL!


Occasional wildlife paths parallel this drainage along an intermittent stream. It is mostly open and grassy, but can be narrow and overgrown with rocky footing in some stretches.

Stats reflect travel from FR300 to the junction with Beaver Canyon, but you can continue to follow Turkey Creek downstream an additional mile to FR91 road access at McGuire Crossing, or an additional 3.5 miles to its terminus at Gentry Canyon.
