A Buffalo Creek favorite - downhill the whole way with good flow!

Michael Ahnemann

Description

This trail is considered to be one of the must-do trails in the Buffalo Creek area. Ridden from the intersection with Homestead and Miller Gulch trails, it's a steady descent the entire way.

There are no hugely technical sections, and the trail surface is mostly smooth dirt/sand the entire way down. You can really let it roll on this trail without worrying much about tight blind corners or technical sections.

This trail is a nice way to finish a longer cruise at Buffalo Creek - it drops you right down onto Buffalo Creek road, not far from the trailhead at Deckers Road.

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