Wild Turkey is a zippy, fun intermediate trail that descends down to the northern part of David Canyon. Riders heading northbound from the Mars Court trail head generally descend the first quarter of the trail before turning onto Cajun Turkey. Thus the bottom three quarters are generally less ridden than the upper portion.

Riding the entire length of the trail will drop you out onto FR335 at the bottom of David Canyon, from here either ride the fire road north toward Cajun Pine or south toward Turkey Trot. Either way you will have to endure a couple miles on a fire road (hence why the lower half of this trail is sort of neglected).

Perhaps in the future a connector trail will be built to connect to West Boundary.
