North of Elkhart in the Cimarron National Grasslands, the Turkey Trail is a 10.5 mile one-way route. The Turkey Trail begins at the far eastern end of Cottonwood Picnic Grounds near the southern end of the Cimarron River bridge on SR27. The trail ends one mile east of Wilburton Crossing. The trail runs along an old dirt road and is relative flat, though sandy.

To reach the dirt biking trailhead, head north of Elkhart on highway 27, just before the Cimarron River bridge and take the gravel road east, a right turn if you are heading north, into the Cottonwood Picnic Grounds. Vehicles may be parked at the picnic grounds. Some visitors chose to access the Turkey Trail from the Cimarron Recreation Area, 4 miles east of highway 27 on FS 700 (south river road). Restrooms are available at the Cottonwood Picnic Grounds and the Cimarron Recreation Area.

Overall, Cimarron National Grasslands is the 2nd most popular dirt bike trail of all 8 dirt biking rides in Kansas.
