This is 1.5 miles in one direction.
The last of "Satan's Staircase," this is a crazy-steep push up to the top of Buckwheat Knob from FS 477. The Buckwheat Knob Trail is short, but provides one access to several other trails, including Avery Creek (#327), Black Mountain (#127), and Club Gap (#343). The trail climbs steeply from Bennett Gap to the top of Buckwheat Knob. This is a pleasant area with lush grass growing underneath large hardwood trees. In the winter, there are nice views of the Avery Creek Valley and Soapstone Ridge. After passing Buckwheat Knob, the trail descends gradually to Club Gap and the intersection with the other trails.
Trail length: 2 miles
