“A tour of a bunch of Buena Vista singletrack.”— Jason Lampenrider
From here, you can extend this loop by taking the Midland Bicycle Trail, or dive right into the Gentleman's Tail Trail. The Gentleman's Tail winds its way west and downward through relatively rocky and tight turns and bottoms out into a fire road. From here, you can cross directly over this fire road and begin the climb up 6034 or climb the fire road.
Both lead you back to CR304 where you can decide again about extending your loop with the Midland Bike Trail Out and Back. If not, head north on CR304 and drop into the Whipple Trail and then the Steep Shortcut back to where you began.
