SNP - Turk Gap Parking Area

A Blue Blazes treat in the form of the three short Turk Mountain Trails:

Turk Mountain Trail (1.8 miles +/- 800 ft)

Turk Gap Trail (3.2 miles +/-1000 ft)

Turk Branch Trail (4.2 miles +/- 1000 ft)

A lot of up and down in this Turkish delight.  An excellent view on Turk mountain and a few water crossings on Turk Branch round out this adventure for everyone.

The return time is approximate.  If you have plans that require you to be back in Richmond at a specific time, please communicate this prior to carpooling with someone, or consider choosing a different hike. 

Optional stop for dinner on the way back if there is interest.
