From Buck Dam to Ivanhoe is a 3.1 mile, easy, slight downhill gradient with parking available at both trailheads. As you travel this section of the trail you will cross the Wythe County line and begin to notice changes in the area surrounding the trail. A highlight of this section is the two hundred and seventy foot long trestle near Ivanhoe Depot. Throughout this area you will see remains of several industrial sites including several mines, gigantic rock crushers and furnaces for the smelting of iron.
