About This Trail
added by Guest on December 31, 2002
 
This is a very nice in and out trail that is about 10 miles in length when starting from Key Bridge(5mi. in, 5mi. out). This trail is great for beginners but has a few mildly technical sections to keep you alert. There is a little bit of everything on this trail. Roots, bridges, small ditches, switchbacks(up & downhill), And logs just to name a few. This trail follows a large creek so it is very winding but still very fast. There is a little climbing, but for the most part is fairly flat so keeping a good pace is not very hard. This is a very popular trail in this area and is also used by hikers so keep your eyes open. My favorite part about this trail is the abundance of wildlife. I have seen deer, squirrells, rabbitts, raccoons, and a skunk just to name a few.

Review: If you start this trail where it crosses the key bridge it is great, just don't start at the top of the trail. There are too many downed trees it makes for an annoying ride. And by downed trees I do not mean ones you can jump over....No one could jump over a few of them.

Review: Great trail with flowing narrow singletrack! Road here by accident. I meant to ride Wine Creek, but zigged when I should have zagged. I'll go back and hit Wine Creek later this week. The trail is in awesome condition right now. You can get some good speed on this trail (my top speed was 17mph), but there are enough technical sections to keep you on your toes. There are about 10 bridges to cross and they are mostly in good condition. There was only one spot where I had to "hike a bike" over a log. Very little climbing, but there are a few switchbacks both up hill and downhill. One warning... Bring bug spray!

Review: Good old trail, great fun, nice views. Enough to keep you honest. Nothing really technical. After the 5 mile point (Turkey and Stevens Creek meet) the trail is a little less traveled. Great in the fall. In times of high water portions of the trail may be flooded. A little more than 7 miles to the end. Cross the road to Wine Creek to make a longer ride.

Review: Nice trail. Classic Sumter National Forest Singletrack. Nice views of the creek, good flow for the most part. Was rather wet, and had several large trees down, when I rode it.

Review: This is a fast trail with some moderate climbs and a couple tricky technical spots. I went 48hrs after a huge rain -- and it was MUDDY. If it's stormed recently, give this trail some time to dry out. All in all, great scenery, cool creek crossings, and a lot of fun.

Review: Directions from Augusta: Take Columbia Rd (232) West until it dead ends. go RIGHT (N/W) on 47/221 thru a tiny town then, bear RIGHT to follow 221. You'll pass Petersburg on the left before Lake Strom Thurman Dam. Continue on 221 into SC, it'll join 28, go thru Modoc (past 23) in/through the city of Price's Mill. Make a right on the small road S33-138, following the Clark's Hill 2mi -> sign. At the dead end, go RIGHT on Key Road (33-237). Park on the right a good bit before the bridge. Turkey Creek trailhead is on the left. Another trail is to the right - I'm not sure which one it is.

Review: Accurate description above. I remember it as the trail with tons of bridges! It's pretty bumpy when you start out, then it goes through a totally green area, an open foresty part, then follows right beside the creek for a while. There are 2 creek crossings, and several rock outcroppings beside the creek, and one aggressive up/down dip once you get back into the forest again. A fast trail with some technical spots. Again, tons of bridges!

Similar Trail: Horn Creek/Lick Fork - similar, but with fewer bridges!
