Turkey Creek begins in the west off Williams Creek Road. It continues east and ultimately ends in a large, relatively flat area. The expansive views of the Sangre De Cristo Mountains to the west at the trail's ends are spectacular.
The trail is a mix of compact dirt and embedded rocks. A water crossing requires you to have a higher clearance vehicle. The banks of Custer Creek are lined with large, embedded rocks roughly the size of basketballs and beach balls. These large rocks could cause issues for a lower clearance vehicle, like a Subaru. A stock higher clearance SUV, like a Jeep or Bronco, should not have any issues crossing the creek. There is plenty of room for a couple of vehicles to park if you choose not to cross the creek, but would still like to hike to the end of the trail to enjoy the views.
Camping is available at the trailhead, where you will find an established fire ring and enough room for multiple rigs.
