Review: Wild Turkey is just plain fun!! Numerous twists, turns, berms, and hills make it that way. Great flow with a few climbs mixed in. Perfect trail for all in my opinion. One the great things about Wild Turkey is that it's centrally located and can be linked to Reedy Fork, Blue Herron, King Fisher, Owls Roost and Country Park. Getting 30 - 50 miles in on your MTB will not be an issue.

Review: This is a five-star trail for so many reasons. We checked out this trail for the first time on October 17, 2015. The setting is spectacular. Perfect conditions with the multi-colored leaves falling on a sunny, but fairly cool day. Numerous twists, turns, berms, and hills make Wild Turkey so much fun. Really good flow. There is some climbing involved, but all worth the effort and not too difficult. Perfect trail for intermediate, advanced or beginner in my opinion. Nothing much in the way of technical riding, except for a few options scattered here and there such as log piles to jump or bunny-hop over. You can get enough speed up in certain sections and it's like riding a roller coaster in a mountain forest. This area has so many nice mountain bike trails. We rode Blue Heron last month and it is an awesome trail as well. We live in Myrtle Beach, SC. So far, Greensboro is our primary choice for hitting the trails. There are just so many great options. I grew up surfing and to me, mountain bike riding is such an awesome way to experience and take part in nature/God's creation. It's very much like riding a wave. Make the trip to ride the trails here. You won't regret it!

Review: Great trail. You can really push you're limits on it and it flows really well with berms to control speed on steep downhills. Best trail I've been on by far

Review: This trail has excellent flow! while being an out and back trail, you do get a bit of traffic and some turns don't really go both ways so dont swing out on turns expecting a berm to hold you.
