this hike offered excellent views for hundreds of miles. there are chances to see wildlife and a beautiful array of wildflowers. the only problem is that there isn't really a set trail. you follow the road until it ends and then you basically summit the peak via the easiest route possible, which can be sketchy at times. other than that major flaw (which seems common in this unmaintained wilderness), it was beautiful and you felt truly alone in the vastness.

You continue along the FR 84 until you reach a sign that says Buckshin Mountain Loop. I think it's more of an ATV trail than hiking trail though. We stopped at Windy Gap to soak in the view and then continued up to the loop. We drove up about 0.5 mile, parked, and hiked up the rest of the way along the road. Buckshin mountain is actually quite colorful and on a clear day you could get some nice views! I just gave it a 3/5 stars because it's more an ATV trail than a hiking trail.

This trail was a nice ride not to bumpy considering I was in a 1ton truck (you can also take the hiking trail as well). The scenery was nice with climbs up the mountain side. I began my trip at the North end of the trail making my way though the trail. Towards the end of the trail there was an "Arch" in the side of the mountain to my surprise which made for a cool picture! There are many other side trails that you can take if you like but depending on your vehicle will be up to you whether to drive them or not. There was one trail next to the "Arch" (pictured) that was pretty steep and rocky that I began to attempt but had to reverse down the trail because it began to get really rocky and that wasn't something I was willing to take on in my truck (way to bumpy). Its very peaceful and quite on this trail so if you enjoy getting out in nature and away from the city this is a very nice trail to drive. I also saw some antelope along the way!
