Mountain Biking Charlie's Cutoff
#157 of 1,362 mountain bike trails in Colorado
At approximately 2 miles, Charlie’s Cutoff isn’t nearly the longest trail in the Buffalo Creek trail system, but it really packs a punch! Descending the trail offers up some big rocks, including some glorious slickrock sections to play on. Further down towards the bottom, the trail runs along a creek deep under the cover of some massive ever green trees, turning to rooty, technical trail in black dirt—a radical departure from the normally dry, gravelly singletrack of the rest of the trail system. While it is tough, climbing UP Charlie’s is very doable too.
