Runner Notes

Good, even trail with lots of loose cobbles.

Description

From the Buckquarter Creek Trail look to the right for the Ridge Trail. The first half mile moves along through thick forest. Pass the local access trail, Knight Trail, and soon you arrive atthe turnoff for the Shakori Trail on the right. Shortly after, on the left, you find the Buckquarter group campground. From here, the trail builds more powerfully at you rise into beautiful, mature forest. The trail ends at a gate where you can turn around or loop back on the Shakori Trail.
