This is a nice trail to start or end a longer run in Buffalo Creek.

Overview

This is a very popular area with mountain bikers. Please stay alert and be respectful of all trail users.

Description

As mapped, if you run this trail from the intersection with Homestead and Miller Gulch trails, it's a steady descent the entire way.

There really aren't any very challenging sections, and the trail surface is mostly smooth dirt/sand the entire way down (there can be some loose sections, so watch your footing).

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