Buffalo Creek is probably my favorite mountain bike trail system in the world and the IMBA Trail Crew will be hitting the trails this weekend, August 13-16, to work and ride. The trails at Buffalo Creek are already some of the best XC trails in the country but they’re about to get some new “black diamond” level terrain. That’s right – steep rollers, drops, and wall rides inside the Pike National Forest!
Things kick off on Thursday, August 13 with a free Trailbuilding School session where participants will be trained as volunteer crew leaders. Trailbuilding school will take place at the American Mountaineering Center in Golden from 6:30-9:30pm.
On Saturday and Sunday work crews will start out at the Miller Gulch trailhead from 8:30-2:00. Word is that beer and food will be provided Saturday evening and camping at the trails is encouraged. And don’t forget to bring your bike for the group ride(s). More details at IMBA.com.
