Bucks Creek Loop Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Although it was designed primarily as a route for mountain bikers, hikers will also enjoy this short loop around a headwaters section of tumbling Bucks Creek.

The gently graded trail passes through stands of thick forest and pockets of flower-filled meadows on a 4.3-mile circuit between the southeast arm of Bucks Lake and Bucks Summit. Although most of the route follows single-track or closed dirt road, to complete the loop, hikers will have to walk a 0.4-mile stretch of Bucks Lake Road immediately below Bucks Summit."

Fantastic horseback trail. This was the 4th time I rode this trail this year. Very lush green vegetation, nice views, meadows, springs, flowers, its always cool with a slight breeze. This is my fav ride when the temps get up into the upper 90's in Quincy. Its always cooler at Bucks Lake.
