From Byllesby Dam to Buck Dam is a 2.6 mile, easy, slight downhill gradient with parking available at both trailheads. The trail follows the New River between the dams. This section of the trail features views of Stoot’s Mountain. Like much of the surrounding hills, Sttot’s Mountain was once nearly cleared of all of its timber. Today, the vast forests you see are actually new growth that has occurred in just the past few decades. One can only imagine the old growth forests that once greeted settlers to this region.
