A short, yet beautiful trail through fern-dominated undergrowth and lush eastern hemlock groves.

Description [Suggest Changes]

Either as a destination trail in itself, or as a single leg of your journey through the Cliff Park area trails, the Buchanan Trail will certainly not disappoint. Starting at the Hackers Falls Parking Area, the trail climbs moderately through a dense hemlock canopy lush with ferns and moisture-loving undergrowth.

About three-quarters of a mile along the journey, visitors can return to the parking area via a junction with the Pond Loop, or can continue on to reach the Cliff Trail.

Flora & Fauna [Suggest Changes]

Eastern hemlock, as well as multiple species of fern can be seen along the trail. Visitors should keep their ears perked for the call of the vibrant orange Blackburnian warbler that loves to perch in the hemlock's tall canopy.
