Turkey Run Park Trail Guide: Paw Paw Trail

The Paw Paw Trail loop, as we describe it, is a 4.78 mile hiking loop located in Turkey Run Park.

This end-to-end trail has many interesting features: spring wildflowers, fine, mature hardwoods and cedars, creekside hiking and junctions with the Chinkapin Trail, Hickory Trail and, unofficially, the Wild Hyacinth Trail. One challenge for hikers is that the trail is shared with mountain bikers. We went early in the morning, in early April, when the temperatures started in the mid-30s and never saw a single bike.

We enjoyed plenty of blooming wildflowers: wild blue phlox, spring larkspur, toadshade trillium and many others. This is a beautiful trail that serves as a springboard to other trails that can be strung together to create the longest hikes in the Parklands.

The trail conditions are very easy, with little elevation gain, and the trail is all dirt, which gets very muddy in rainy conditions, so beware.

We hope you enjoy the guide, and even more, we hope you enjoy the trail. Leave your impressions in the comments section below!
