Multiple North Texas Trails

Registration is required
No Fee
DORBA Juniors Turkey Lurkey begins Monday, November 2nd and will run for 4 weeks.

DORBA and Raintree Healthcare are proud and excited to present the DORBA 2020 “Turkey Lurkey” Juniors challenge. Parents & Juniors! Turkey Lurkey is hiding on our local trails and it’s up to you to find him.

We have a new Fall challenge for the kids starting next Monday, November 2nd. This will be a simple NON-COMPETITIVE “Scavenger Hunt” event. Juniors will have one month (from November 2nd to November 29th) to find Turkey Lurkey posted along 14 different DORBA and DORBA affiliated trails.

10 of these trails will be “Designated Trails” while 4 of these trails will be “Mystery Trails.” Designated trails will be announced the day before the challenge starts. Mystery trails will NOT be announced; Juniors will just have to guess and hope to find Turkey Lurkey wherever they may be riding! I may – or may NOT (!) – give hints along the way as to which trails these include.

When a Junior finds Turkey Lurkey, he/she must take a picture with the sign and post it on the DORBA Juniors page for credit. Each picture of Turkey Lurkey on a trail will be worth 1 raffle ticket, while the FIRST (and only the first) picture of Turkey Lurkey on a “Mystery trail” will be worth 3 raffle tickets! At the end of the challenge, all of a Junior’s tickets will be entered into a random drawing for gift cards and prizes which will be mailed to the lucky winners during the first week of December.


Q: We have 37 deadbeat relatives coming for Thanksgiving; I have to feed them all and I’m broke. How much does this challenge cost?
A: It’s FREE, thanks to DORBA and our generous sponsors.

Q: Do we have to be members of DORBA to participate?
A: No. But seriously, if your Juniors are participating, PLEASE consider joining DORBA. I mean, it’s like $35 bucks a year (that’s less than you spend taking the family to the movies) and it supports trail access, construction, and maintenance year-round!

Q: Which trails might be included?
A: Designated trails will be announced the day before the challenge starts. Mystery trails will not be announced, but once “discovered” by a Junior will be available for other Juniors to know and ride. This year, these will not include Texas State Park trails or trails requiring an entry fee. Most of the trails will be in/near the metroplex area.

Q: This sounds great! I’d much rather take my kid mountain biking than shop for free range organic turkey and gluten free stuffing. How do we sign up?
A: Click on the Register Now button on the right.
