The Lost Turkey Trail is a 26 mile trail that cuts through Gallitzin state forest, State Game Lands and Blue knob state park. Overnight camping is permitted only in the state forest land.
The trail begins at the Southern terminus at The Babcock picnic area and continues for several miles with mild terrain along Pot Ridge. At about 14 miles the trail meets Little Break Hollow and the terrain changes from gentle to challenging for the remainder of the hike. The trail follows Forks ridge and then traverses beautiful Bob's Creek along a cable bridge. There are several camping spots in this area (even though it is not in state forest land). The trail then climbs Hog Back Ridge and continues on to Blue Knob State Park.
At mile 24 (along Hog Back Ridge) there is a monument built to two children who got lost in the mountains and perished in 1856.
