This ride combines French Lick's Buffalo Trace and Waterfall Trails. Riders start from the entry across West Country Rd. 25 South from the golf course and climb Buffalo Trace Trail. At mile 1.65 they make a left onto the Waterfall trail and follow its entirety. The Waterfall Trail then rejoins Buffalo Trace--riders bear left and make one more ascent before having a long, fun descent back to the trailhead.
