Box Turtle Trail is one of four trails (this, Tall Oaks, Morel Ravine and Little West Virginia) that make up the Morgan Trail System. This is a beginner rated trail with no unavoidable obstacles, no steep climbs and a relatively few rooty or rocky sections. The trail is relatively narrow in sections for a beginner trail and it would not be suitable for very young children. Even so, the trail is popular with more advanced riders because it can be extremely fast for a cross country trail and has some fun, flowy downhill sections.

Access Info

Access this trail either from the Morgan Trail System trailhead on Crosstick Trail or from the Horner Forest Trail parking lot on Qualla Road via the Qualla Connector Trail
