ride "Beyond Buffalo Creek"

  • Sep 22, 2013 · 9:30 AM

Trail rating C2 / T2.  There are trails outside of the Buffalo Creek area that are similar in fun-factor but less travelled.  Odds are you have not ridden these trails.  There is some  climbing, none too punishing.  There are some roots and rocks but more of the trail is smooth and flowy.  I like riding flowy trails.  I like just saying the word flowy. 

Ride length 10-12 miles, estimated time on trail 2.5 – 3 hours.  Along the way there will be couple options to lengthen or shorten the ride. 

AFTER THE RIDE:  The trailhead parking lot has no picnic tables, outhouses or other facilities, so let’s plan on a visit to the Rustic Station Restaurant on the way back. 

CARPOOLING:  Meet at the gravel parking area in front of The Fort Restaurant (19192 Highway 8, Morrison, CO) 9:30AM. Look for Pat’s silver Pontiac Vibe.  The drive to the trailhead is about 55 minutes from the Fort.  I expect we’ll be back to The Fort around 3:30-4:00. 

If The Fort is not convenient for you, meet at 10:15 by the Rustic Station Restaurant in Bailey, 1 County Rd 68 (south side of hwy 285 at Wellington Lake Rd).

    Wish I would have seen this ride before committing to a ride at Centennial Cone on Sat. But, next time. First time riding in groups, so I'm excited. Have fun; ride hard; enjoy the camaraderie, then top the ride off with a good beer or wine.... ;)

    I am camping at Kenosha Pass so I will probably meet you at 10:30 at the Rustic Station Restaurant instead of backtracking. If you don't see me at the Fort then that's what I'll be doing. I drive a blue Ford Escape.
