The Buck Creek Trail runs between Buck Creek State Park and Plum Street by Wittenberg University. At its eastern end in Buck Creek State Park, the trail makes a loop and heads into 2 different directions bordering the southwest side of the reservoir.
The trail follows a route that is mostly wooded but includes open space and a short, more urban section just north of Springfield city center. Following Buck Creek itself, the trail passes through a few city parks.
Near the playing fields at the Municipal Stadium, the Buck Creek Trail crosses the Simon Kenton Trail. Both are part of the Miami Valley trail system, one of the nation's largest networks of paved, off-street trails.
Parking and restrooms are available in Old Reid Park at Pumphouse and Croft Roads, in Buck Creek State Park on Croft Road, and in the Buck Creek State Park beach parking lots. There is also some parking at Veteran's Park in Springfield.
