This is the main trail at Buck Creek. It follows the lakeside and goes past the cabins and leads to the campground area. It’s a very wide trail until you reach the cabins area. Lots of people fish off to the side of the trail. Great views can be had year round. Nice trail for small children as there are plenty of gravel beds to explore. Flat.Show more
