"Mach Turkey" as the name implies, is the fastest and arguably the most fun section of trail on the Speakeasy loop. At the end of "Bootleggers Run", continue straight ahead. WARNING, if you go left at the end of Bootleggers, you will be entering the double black diamond jump line dubbed, "Have a Double". "Mach Turkey cuts across some level terrain then turns left near a large fallen tree. Be ready the trail gets narrow and fast with a few berm turns. Then there is a paved out kicker over a fallen tree that lands you on a steep downhill. The kicker will send ya approximately 25-30 feet if you hit if full speed. Bank right at the bottom of the kicker hill and continue along with good speed, split a couple of trees and you are almost back to the fire road, "Moonshine Lane". The last 20 feet of trail is leaf covered so as to stop ATV users from noticing the trail from the fire road. Keep it that way. This concludes the Speakeasy loop...for now.

This trail is unsanctioned.

      Logs and rocks block the entire trail. Also look intentionally placed to stop bikers
