The Buffalo Gap trail goes around the South Unit of Theodore Roosevelt National Park. This trail was developed as an uninterrupted single track mountain bike trail to Sully Creek Campground. The trail crosses Knutson creek with a hardened low water crossing and numerous long rolling grasslands areas. The trail goes just south of the Buffalo Gap guest ranch, and accesses the Buffalo Gap campground on a short spur trail.
