Trail Report: Turner Run 9/21/18

September 26, 2018

On Friday I got out of work a little early and I had just enough time to fit in a quick trail ride before dark. Score!

I drove up to Turner Run which was a bit sketchy driving in. It was slippery and a bit muddy for going up hill pulling a trailer so I used 4WD and made sure I kept going.

The fire road gate is open but I parked at the circle. Annoyingly the circle was overgrown and trashed making it hard to turn around.

I would not have been able to continue driving up the road passed the gate with the trailer this time. There were some wash outs and rather rough spots from all the rain. The truck would have been fine but not pulling a trailer.

Off we went enjoying the gorgeous afternoon. We got in some nice trotting and some leisurely walking.

And then it started to rain.

(Do bears poop in the woods? I am not sure about the woods but they do poop on the fire road)

And then the sky opened up and it poured.

It rained for a good half hour. Completely soaking us.

And then the sun came back out.

And the day became gorgeous again.

There were tons of old mushrooms along the way.

And some Berries.

And some amazing views.

We got in a few nice gallops and then enjoyed our time riding back to the truck.

It was an excellent start to the weekend.
