A short but sweet section of trail - more entertaining than most of the rest of Buffalo Creek.

Overview

Description

This short trail is fun from top to bottom, and I only wish it were longer. There's definitely a preferred direction on this one, which is DOWNHILL from Strawberry Jack to Homestead Trail.

There are several rock features along the way - everything is rideable, and expert riders will barely slow down. The features consist of 5 to 15 foot sections of smooth rock. Some have additional technical features with small drops or short downhill moves, but nothing crazy. You can ride this trail as fast as you're comfortable riding - there are no big surprises, just fun!

Fun little bit of trail with lots of drifty flat corners. Fairly new school and progressive.
