Turkeycock Wildlife Management Area


Turkeycock Wildlife Management Area

Turkeycock Wildlife Management Area is a protected area located along the ridge of Turkeycock Mountain northwest of Martinsville, Virginia; its 2679 acres straddle the border between Franklin and Henry Counties. The area is primarily forest, with several opea areas for wildlife located around the property. The lowest elevation is 1100 feet above sea level, while the highest is over 1700 feet. A number of small streams drain the land, and a pond is located near its southwestern corner. Most wildlife management in the area has been limited to improving timber quality through the sale of wood.
