      Within the boundaries of the Pike National Forest the mountain bike trails at Buffalo Creek offer up more mellow, flowy, xc and trail oriented rides as opposed to some of the steeper and more chunky trails you may find on the Front Range and Summit County areas. Don't assume mellow and flowy does not equal fun though. There are possibilities to link up all kinds of rides, from short family friendly loops, to full day epics.
