Decent enough hike with stream and couple of hills. The actual Buzzard trail section where it crosses over the stream couple times can be pretty muddy, but not too bad in late fall/winter with the leaves covering most of it. There are no open views on this trail, though without leaves on the trees can see somewhat the valley/hills once getting up the hill toward bottom of the loop. Never did the Buzzard stretch before, but probably wouldn't bother with again (Mill Creek loop probably more scenic).
