Mountain Biking Wild Turkey

*****   Add a review
#31 of 549 mountain bike trails in North Carolina
#623 in the world

Wild Turkey has become one of the most popular trails east of the mountains. Constructed by The Greensboro Fat Tire Society constructed in early 2008.

Wild Turkey has been cleared of most roots, smooth groomed single-track in the beautiful woods along Lake Brandt. The trail is fast, fun, flows great, great berms, rock jumps, skinny's, and even a few climbs.

Come see why riders come from all over North Carolina to ride Wild Turkey!
