Update

Work up Buckeye Mountain, along the ridge, then down to Caney Creek where the trail intersects the Caney Creek Trail.

Overview

Features: Fall Colors — River/Creek — Views — Waterfall

Description

The trail ascends Buckeye Mountain, then follows the ridge. Along the way, there are several very nice overlooks. You'll enjoy plenty of shade as there are many trees along the way. The trail is narrow singletrack but is generally easy to follow. At the end, the trail descends to Caney Creek, where it intersects the Caney Creek Trail to make a loop.

Also, don't miss a short spur to Kay Waterfall, located just off the trail about 0.1 miles before the Caney Creek Trail intersection.

Flora & Fauna

Big trees, moss, ferns, grassy in areas. A little overgrown at the time we were there (Nov '16)
