Buck Trail Via Koomer Ridge Trail is a 5.6 mile out and back trail located near Pine Ridge, Kentucky that features a great forest setting. The trail is rated as moderate and primarily used for hiking, walking, and trail running.
This trail connects Koomer Ridge Trail with the Pinch-em-Tight section of the Sheltowee Trace National Recreation Trail. The trail leads from one ridge to the other, across the right fork of Chimney Top Creek.
We hiked this trail as part of a 6.5 mile loop combined with a few others. Very challenging, and a great workout.
Great trail providing the perfect mix of vistas with a variety of terrain including uphill, downhill, and flat. Also there is a great stream here you will have to ford at the bottom of the valley. I've been hiking the gorge for over 10 yrs now and use this trail along with a section of the rough trail and pinch em tight trails to make a loop with the koomer ridge trail. My favorite overall loop by far to day hike in the park!
