Easy hike nice view
The Buck Mountain Trail is located at MP 123.2 on the Blue Ridge Parkway. It's a short (1 mile round trip) hike to the overlook at the summit. There's not much of a view, but it's a good leg stretcher if you are traveling the Parkway and need a break.
gave us the wrong directions. need to have better directions
No trail here.
Straight up straight down, not a great view, quick 25 min -we left a little disappointed
Great hike for small kids, quick and easy. Had a blast
If you want a short quick hike then you've found it. Starts in the parking lot and works its way uphill. The top has a couple of benches to sit and picnic or just stare off into the woods with a little bit of a view. The path has some crushed gravel at the begining then turns to dirt.
