Black Tail Trail

The entrance for Black Tail Trail is at the intersection of Val View and Acorn.  There are 2 trails that lead down to Turner Lake from this entrance.  The north trail is a steep, hiking path, and straight down to the lake.  The south trail consists of switch backs, intended for mountain biking.  Neither trail is ADA approved and both are primitive.
