About This Trail
added by tcbroncs Gnarly on August 25, 2012
 
Trail heads west through a larger burn area in Bufffalo Creek. Somewhat flat ride with sweet singletrack in and out of burned and non-burned forests. Go from south to north to enjoy a mostly downhill ride. And go during sunset for spectacular views.

Review: This is good way to bypass much of the section of CO Trail/doubletrack as you enter off of Route 126. The trail is skinny singletrack, generally rolling, and like much of the Buffalo Creek network, covered with loose granite sand and gravel. It's a good start to a great loop: Start at the parking area at Buffalo Creek Road. Ride up the hill on 126 to the Colorado Trail (middle ring, not too steep and a decent shoulder most of the way). Cut into the Colorado Trail and immediately drop into Buffalo Burn. Reconnect with the CO Trail and take to Shinglemill. Shinglemill downhill all the way to Buffalo Creek Rd. Left on Buffalo Creek Road to Baldy, climb Baldy and then work over to Charlie's, Morrison, Sandy Wash. Altogether 22 miles, 2850 ft. of climbing.

Review: We ride this after we ride the Colorado Trail out and back. If you hit it right at sunset, it's a pretty amazing experience. This trail is not technical and there is pretty much all downhill if you ride it from south to north.
