Comments, Notes: From Bucktail Falls, heading Northwest on Moonhill Road, there appears to be a seasonal waterfall located here N42.82366 W76.24301. For now I have named this Bucktail 2 only because it is within sight of Bucktail Falls. It is not on the same stream. Topographical maps does not show a stream exists.
