Hero: South Turkey Knob
small-sr Icon
South Turkey Knob runs east through BLM land from Highway 95 to Cedar Point, with views of the Dirty Devil River and Poison Springs Canyon. The trail begins as a wide graded road. While this section is easy, there is annoying washboarding. Airing down helps. At Poison Point, the trail offers an option. You can drive directly over the point's small hill point or go around to the south. Neither choice presents any significant difficulties. After Poison Point, the trail changes to a narrow track with deep sand. The most challenging sections are sandy hill climbs and one severely off-camber turn around a large juniper tree. The trail forks once you reach the canyon's edge. Several small campsites along the rim offer excellent views, with Gunsight Notch dominating the horizon.
