Buck Hill Yellow Dot Professional Reviews and Guides
"This route passes through a vast expanse of deciduous woodland, large meadows, and wide swathes of clear-cut forest. Some fields contain crops like corn and grasses to attract wildlife. If you want to get away from it all and possibly not see another human for hours, this is your destination. The trail begins behind a brown metal gate that’s readily apparent at the far end of the lot. Continue on a flat dirt road through a field and to your right (east) you’ll see a brown signboard affixed with a trail map. The road curves off to the right through deciduous forest. Cross through a pine grove and turn right (northeast) at an intersection at about 0.2 mile. Here you’ll see what appears to be a square foundation sunken into the ground to your right."
