Charlie's cutoff is a favorite connector in the Buffalo Creek trail system. Traditionally ridden in the downhill direction but can be ridden in either orientation. Trail has some rock faces/granite slabs that are fun to play around on for riders of all ability. This is a signature piece of single track that's well worth the grunt up Gashouse/Baldy.
