The hike to Buck Ridge Lookout is a scenic 6 mile loop in Phoenicia Wild Forest.

This trail takes hikers through a gorgeous forest, past Diamond Notch Falls, to a glorious viewpoint from Buck Ridge Lookout. There are plenty of great, shaded spots along the trail that are perfect for a drink of water or a quick snack. 

This hike is do-able year round: bring crampons or snowshoes in the winter, enjoy wildflowers in the spring and summer, and gorgeous autumn colors on the foliage in the fall.
