Buffalo Pass

Below are a few proposed projects planned for the Buffalo Pass Network including connections to town & the Mad Creek Network.  If you have time to look them over and notice anything we might have missed to make them better, please let us know by filling out the comments.  There are many reasons why the projects are proposed the way we have them, but that does not mean an idea you come up with will not make them better.  We are open to constructive criticism (if you think the project could be improved) and praise (if you like the project as described & mapped).  We will not be able to respond to all comments but rest assured that if you take the time to give us your feed back, we will take the time to consider your suggestions.

Gunn Creek Trail

posted Nov 24, 2012, 4:34 PM by Eric Meyer   [ updated Mar 4, 2013, 9:59 AM ]

Project Description: 

This 8 mile multi-use trail provides a critical link allowing trail users to ride from town all the way to the Mad Creek Trail System without using any roads.  This connection from town reduces vehicle traffic and bike traffic on Elk River Rd.

Spring Creek Alternate Trail

Project Description: 
Mountain bike traffic has increased on Buffalo Pass over the past few years, so has traffic on the multi-use Spring Creek Trail.  In order to reduce user conflict and increase safety on the heavily used Spring Creek Trail, an alternate downhill route for bikers is essential.

Buffalo Pass Alternate Trail (Buffalo Billy's)

posted Nov 24, 2012, 12:45 PM by Eric Meyer   [ updated Mar 4, 2013, 10:00 AM ]

Project Description: 

This 5 mile user-specific directional trail is purpose built for gravity mountain biking and offers a fun and sustainable alternative to the unauthorized trails that currently exist on Buffalo Pass.  With good cell coverage and easy access to Buffalo Pass road this trail provides a superior alternate to the existing unauthorized trail.  Furthermore, this trail will reduce traffic and resource damage associated with the unsustainable trails in the area.

Buffalo Pass Unauthorized Trails

posted Nov 24, 2012, 12:42 PM by Eric Meyer   [ updated Mar 4, 2013, 10:00 AM ]

Project Description: These unauthorized trails are not part of the Forest Service’s System of Trails.  Trail work and possible re-routes are needed to make this network sustainable and worthy of inclusion into a sanctioned trail system.  The Forest Service has requested assistance in this regard and has ultimate authority in determining if, or when these trails will be included in the system.  As trail stewards we do not condone the construction of these unauthorized trails, but rather wish to work with our land managers to alleviate resource damage on our public lands.  A proposed “Buffalo Pass Alternate Trail” will help reduce pressure on existing unauthorized trails and in turn help reduce resource damage.
