This secluded low-elevation hike leads from Abrams Creek Ranger Station through lush valleys and over piney ridges to the Buchanan Cemetery, an interment for the residents of now-wild Cane Creek valley. The last part of the hike traverses the relatively little-used Cane Creek Trail. Pass two less-used backcountry campsites along the way. As a low-elevation hike, it might be hot on the trail in the summer. That same low elevation makes this hike appealing in winter, when the temperatures will be much milder than in the high country.
