Buck Run and Locust Spring Run Trails are located on the turn-of-the-century railroad tram grades used by the previous landowner to log virgin timber. The Buck Run Trail provides a view of beaver ponds, open glades and vegetation that you would expect to see in Canada. The Locust Spring Run Trail provides views of northern hardwoods and is an ideal trail for viewing deer and wild turkey. Waterways in the area contain native Brook Trout. Both trails are designated with blue blazes. Directions: From Monterey, VA, travel north on Rt. 220 for 7 miles, turning left/west onto Rt. 642. This turns right ½ mile after passing through Blue Grass, travel 13 miles. Turn onto Forest Rd. 106. Turn right onto Forest Road 60. Travel ½ mile and turn right onto Forest Rd. 142. Drive ½ mile to Locust Springs. The two trails form a loop.
