Buckhorn Creek Road is doubletrack as far as the Cannon Creek Trail junction. There it forks off to the left on a narrow singletrack while Cannon Creek Trail bears off to the right on what was the original logging road. It is easy to miss this fork and wind up on Cannon Creek Trail, even though there is a trail sign there.

Buckhorn Creek Road is a lot like the other doubletracks in this part of the Forest. There are two creek crossing (see photos). The first is fairly wide but hikers can cross using the rocks at one side and keep their feet dry. The second creek is very narrow and easily hopped across. Mountain bikers should not have any problem with either.

Shortly past the second creek crossing, the trail gets narrower and narrower eventually disappearing in the underbrush. Old maps show it going down to a creek but the last time I rode it (April 2013), it would have required a machete to get all the way to the creek.
