“A great, new flow trail at Buffalo Creek, which combined with Nice Kitty is a BC classic ride.”— Terry Smith
This trail has been in progress for a couple of years, thanks in part to COMBA and many others. The loop was just completed (June 2016) and it was worth the wait!
From the Little Scraggy parking lot, the loop begins just across FS Road 550 (marked). Ride this one clockwise! The trail winds through forest with some nice rock features (even a little slickrock).
At the first junction (5.1 miles), take the right fork (the left leads to the Kelsey Campground) and begin a gentle climb west. At 6.8 miles, you'll reach the beginning of an incredible flow section. This section winds downhill with bermed corners, good visibility and incredible views.
Toward the end of the new section, you get great views of Little Scraggy Dome, a cool (though rarely used) rock climbing area. The next junction (presently unmarked) at 9.2 miles is with the Colorado Trail. To complete the loop, turn right and follow the Colorado Trail back to the Little Scraggy parking lot.
Turn left to continue on the Colorado Trail and to other Buffalo Creek adventures. Of course, you can start this loop from the main BC parking lot on Forest Road 543. A nice option is to climb Nice Kitty and Buffalo Burn to the Little Scraggy parking lot, do the loop and descend Shingle Mill Trail back to the main Buffalo Creek lot.
