Fire road connecting Lost Lake to Buffehr Trail or Buck Creek and beyond

Features eMTB allowed

Portions of this fire road are likely to be covered in snow well into May. At least one section is not recommended for low clearance vehicles.

Description

This fire road connects the western trailhead of Lost Lake Trail to Buffehr Creek Trail descent. It goes much further if you want to keep going.

If you're looking for more miles and climbing, you could continue along this fire road to connect to Buck Creek descent leading to Avon, or descend the upper portion of Buck Creek and connect to Nottingham Ridge Trail leading to Davos Hill Climb descent back to West Vail.

If you're shuttling, the road is fine for passenger cars coming from Red Sandstone Road to the top of Buffehr Creek Trail, but note the very steep and rocky section (see Hazard icon) not passable for low clearance vehicles.
