Some rocks and roots, but another nice and easy intermediate option.

Description

This trail rolls up and down, but never too steeply or for very long. Compared to other trails in the area, it's a little bit rockier with a few more roots, but still not much. There are some fun sections of flat granite that you can ride right over. The descents are fast and flowing, and not very steep, so you can go quite fast.

This was awesome - like Moab in spots. Rode Charlie's cut off then past the turn and hand to ride back up but worth it

Dry - Sand sand sand! If you love slogging thru 19 miles of boring sand and washed out gullys this is the trail.

Super fun easy down hill section of the greater Buffalo Creek trail system. Best if you take Charlies Cutoff on the way down. Finishes with Sandy wash trail. Not lying about the sandy, makes for some interesting white knuckle, bar dragging corners. Jul 16, 2014
