Buck Hollow/Mary's Rock Trail - Shenandoah National Park
Length: 4.6 miles
The Buck Hollow Trail is about 3 miles and an difficult hike along an old mining road that leads north through a chaparral and oak woodland forest. Several small creek crossings, spring wildflowers and the sounds of frogs make this walk a very difficult stroll through the woods for families with children. Large oak trees are found along the trail. Hikers will enjoy small open meadows that support a variety of wildflowers in the springtime.
There are many streams for children to explore and learn about habitat for frogs and water bugs. Creekside habitats are among the most diverse in plant and animal species.
