Trail Overview

Upper Buck Mountain is the second half of Buck Lookout Road, leading to the Buck Mountain summit where the fire lookout tower is located. This section of the trail is a very narrow two-track, more advanced, where 4WD and higher clearance are highly advised. The trail is essentially one long hill climb with short steeper sections throughout. Some of the rocky steep sections have turns involved that may be tricky for some vehicles to navigate. A fire destroyed the surrounding forest, making for eerie vibes on a cloudy/foggy day. Downed trees may obstruct the trail or create an obstacle to navigate around. Unfortunately, the weather rolled in at the time of mapping, obstructing the view from the fire tower. On a clear day, you'll certainly be able to see for miles and miles in every direction. The trail is closed in the winter/spring months.
