Description

Grand Turk has a lovely walk up from numerous routes. There is vast potential on its eastern portion.

Getting There

A variety of outstanding options exist for accessing this peak. My preference is travelling north on US 550, taking 1st left after Aladdin's Lamp. Or from the south, take the 2nd right onto a dirt road and parking. Head toward the power lines/utility poles to the west, bypassing the marsh on its left through the forest; skirting the downfall, staying close to the marsh. Cross the log, and follow the way it points until you reach the proximity of the first utility pole. Once emerging from the trees, one may either head right and take a series of a mostly disconnected and steep game trails which switchback up between a very clean granite cliff and a huge unstable talus field, then onto the border of the field and the grassy hummocks, to a series of benches (one has amazing limestone bouldering) and early season snowfields, and finally above the last bench, the trail which accesses the spires and faces of the east face.

More gently, but longer in distance, one may hike left into the Grand Turk drainage and meander up through little outcrops, with good tree cover and shade to little streams in flowery meadows, gurgling rivulets, and great camping spots. Unlike the previous approach, this conveniently accesses both of the conglomerate cliffs climbed on, so far: Reign of Women and Atatürk's Vision.
