Mountain Biking Buck Gulch

****   Add a review
#207 of 1,361 mountain bike trails in Colorado
#1,610 in the world

This is yet another awesome ride in the Buffalo Creek area with well groomed singletrack and
fantastic scenery. Take the Narrow Gauge Trail to the right for about 0.3 miles then turn left onto
Buck Gulch Trail (crossing the bridge). Ride Buck Gulch all the way up a fairly steep climb to the
intersection with the Skipper Trail. Take the Skipper to the left to a four way intersection with the
Homestead Trail. Go right on the doubletrack to the intersection with Charlie's Cutoff. Go left on
Charlie's cutoff, then left back onto the Homestead Trail. This will spit you out back at the four
way intersection, go right onto Strawberry Jack Trail for a nice downhill back to the Buck Gulch
Trail. Go right onto Buck Gulch and you're back at Pine Valley Ranch open space. This is one of
the top rides in the area once you get past the initial climb (about 1000 ft in 3 miles) and offers
some great singletrack, all completely rideable.
