The Buffalo Creek trail network is just begging for trail linkups to create the perfect ride. This route links several of what many consider the "Must Do" trails at Buff Creek while providing essentially two long downhills. The first half of the ride includes a few of these "Must Do's". With the headliner being the Little Scraggy loop. Upon finishing the fabulous downhill on Little Scraggy West, your descent is extended by continuing down Shinglemill. The second half of the ride begins with a climb up Baldy, giving access to yet another great downhill involving two more "Must Do's" Charlies Cut and Sandy Wash.

 The "Trails in Route" listing is slightly incorrect: At the end of Nice Kitty, you turn west (right) onto Buffalo Burn #758, not NF-537. NF 537 is a short segment after you complete Buffalo Burn #758 and are heading to Little Scraggy. Buffalo Burn #758 is not listed at all in the "Trails in Route".
