Location: Pine, Colorado, United States
Trail Type: Singletrack
From Colorado Springs, take US 24 to Woodland Park. Turn right onto CO 67 and go to Deckers.
Continue straight onto CO 126 approximately 20 miles. Parking is on the right just before the
bridge at the Buffalo Creek Forest Service Work Center. The trail starts on Buffalo Creek road on
the left of CO 126 just over the bridge. Ride about 3 miles and turn right onto Baldy Trail and
stay on Baldy through the climb. Turn right onto Gashouse, and make your next turn right onto
Miller Gulch Trail. Go left onto the Homestead trail, then right on Charlie's Cutoff. This becomes
Sandy Wash trail, take this back down to Buffalo Creek Road.
Wow, this trail is awesome. I had high expectations after riding the Green Mountain and Morrison
Creek sections off the nearby Colorado trail and Buffalo Creek didn't disappoint. The climb on
Buffalo Creek road is nice and steady as it follows the stream up. Baldy trail takes you through
some burned out sections of forest and over a short stretch of slickrock as you near the top of
the climb (about 1000 feet by the time it's all done). The singletrack downhills on this trail are
amazing, especially Charlie's Cutoff with more slickrock sections and some hairy turns through
some cool rock formations. Sandy Wash has some nice banked turns and some technical
sections near the top (parts of this go through some more burned out forest sections). When
you're back down to the road you'll be amazed at how much downhill you got out of that easy
little climb. Awesome, you gotta try this trail!
