Turk Mountain Report:
I love this hike I live in Virginia and this is one of my favorite hikes that I have been on in the area. It is nice because you can also drive on the famous skyline drive which is beautiful and scenic so even before your hike while traveling to it you feel like you are already experiencing so of the most beautiful places in all of America. I love the forest here the trees seem so old and majestic and you can really feel what America must have been like all those years ago before Columbus wailed the sea and we came her from Europe. For anyone who loves nature and dense forest with beautiful vistas this is worth checking out.
