Turkey Tail is a great crag with some terrific lines. The difficulty level is a bit stiffer than most of the crags in the Turkey Rocks complex, so the seeker of the lower end difficulty routes might consider other crags in the area. Some of the routes include overhanging sections, so power can be useful here. This crag is to the right of Turkey Rock & Turkey Perch. Perhaps, the area classic is Whimsical Dreams.
Turkey Tail located down and right from Turkey Perch. Go to the saddle near Turkey Perch, hike down and right to the base of the crag.

The first pitch is long and stellar. Bring two ropes to rap of the first pitch at the shuts. You should know how to crack climb and have some endurance if you hop on this baby.
