    Bert & Jane Gildart
    "This invigorating loop hike along a rushing stream descends through a hollow, then climbs Buck Ridge. The trail leads to a rarely visited, wild section of the park. Within 0.1 mile the Buck Hollow Trail approaches a stream, which comes in from the right. The stream is only a small trickle, but within 0.7 mile its volume increases, and then at 1 mile from the trailhead it cascades over a series of rock tiers. The trail remains steep and continues its descent into Buck Hollow. At 2.8 miles from the trailhead, the Buck Hollow Trail joins the Buck Ridge Trail. The Buck Ridge Trail goes right at a metal tag on a cement post. The Hazel Mountain Trail is 2.3 miles away and Skyline Drive is 2.8 miles away." Read more
