Trail shared by Luke Brisk

A new trail connecting Warpath Ridge to McKay Hollow Trail.

Features River/Creek · Waterfall · Wildflowers · Wildlife

Description

Bucca Trail is less than a mile long with very little elevation change. It runs from Warpath Ridge to McKay Hollow Trail.

Like its South Plateau Loop counterpart, the Bucca Family Trail also curves nicely as it meanders around O'shaungasey point and its natural bench. There are a lot of rocks throughout the trail, including some large flat rocks that are quite slippery when wet.

Note: If you are attacking the trail from McKay Hollow Trail the entrance is not marked and can easily be missed.
