There are two Buck Creek trails near Mt Adams. This is the larger of the two, located on DNR land next to...Buck Creek.
The other buck: Buck Cr Tr54, is shown on the Morrison Creek page, next to the White Salmon River.
Sharing a portion of Monte Carlo Tr52, the CW Buck Creek loop starts in a forested valley bottom and climbs about 13mi over undulating terrain to the Monte Carlo ridgetop, followed by an 8mi relentless 9% descent down to Buck Creek.
The eastern half of the trail does not get as much use, as many riders prefer to ascend B1000 then descend the western half of the trail.
A description of the entire CW loop is described in the guide below.
A shuttle ride can start at the upper Buck Creek TH, taking B1000 to B1800 to the TH, then riding back about 10mi in either direction.
Ranking consistently applied to all of the listed trails.
