Buffalo Creek

Located an hour west of Denver, the Buffalo Creek Recreation Area features smooth, rolling singletrack and lots of variety. The diverse trail system meanders through areas unaffected by fire, as well as surreal, barren landscapes still rebounding from past forest fires. These are among the best trails in the greater Denver region. You will enjoy mountain views, majestic rock formations, great downhills, smooth roller coasters, and almost all singletrack!

COMBA partners with our friends at the South Platte Ranger District of the Pike National Forest to maintain and build trails and provide volunteer patrollers in Buffalo Creek. Check out a map of Buffalo Creek trail system.

Little Scraggy Trail Construction Update

On Friday, August 8th, we were joined by 24 employees of Oppenheimer Funds as part of their corporate volunteer program. Trail building is a little out of the norm for their volunteer program but they decided to give it a go this year and we’re glad they did. The volunteers weren’t quite sure what they were getting themselves into but based on the laughter, stories and good natured teasing at the...Read more
