Fun loops showing all the best that Buffalo Creek has to offer. Start with a solid climb up Nice Kitty/Buffalo Burn before hitting the Colorado Trail for the outside of the loop. This is a good up and down section through the woods (there has been a lot of recent clear cutting so there isnt much shade left). Get to Gas House for the second sustained climb of the day. You'll get to the top and there is nothing but fun left with flowy, fun downhills with Charlie's Cuttoff, Homestead and Sandy Wash before exiting out onto the road you came in on. Solid day ride usually taking a few hours. Can get busy on weekends, and if weather is supposed to be hot be careful because it is very open and can get very dry and warm.
