The Grouse Mountain Trail was constructed by the City of Buffalo through an agreement with the Bureau of Land Management and Forest Service. It is a great place for those seeking challenging hills, deep creek crossings and amazing vistas. The trail was designed for mountain biking with other non-motorized uses in mind. This trail connects the City of Buffalo’s trail system to the Bighorn National Forest’s trail system. Those using the trail will find themselves in open meadows among flower covered slopes, rustling aspen groves and deep pine and spruce forests. Due to steep grades high speeds can result, please remember that others may also be on the trail so use caution and plan accordingly.

Access Info

Take Hwy 16 approx. 7 miles west of Buffalo, WY and turn south onto road towards Mosier Gulch Picnic Ground.

This trail has a little bit of everything - prairie, woods, steep declines, and tons of stones to hop. It really is closer to a black rather than...

 One of my favorite trails. Some really tight switchbacks that surely must be a challenge on a 29er (my bmxy/trialsy 26er thrives). Some vertical exposure.
