The map shown here is inaccurate. It is a lollipop loop trail, but it's not this one. The long/lat is correct, so simply follow the trail once you get there. It's also 1.6 miles TO the loop portion of the trail, not total.

Was a nice loop with some great views. The Buzzard Loop Trail as it's shown in the app is different than the one marked in the park though. If you want to do the trail as it's shown in the app, I think it would be a combination of North Buzzard and Jack's Trail based on the trailhead map.

Hiked Buzzard Trail stumbly and thought it was a nice moderately to easy hike. Probably hiked for a little over an hour. The lookout view was great.

My whole family hiked this trail. It's easy for the kids but enough to get the heart pumping. The view is breath taking.
