Little Scraggy Loop Trail has been Approved, August 20, 2013

After 2.5 years and over 1,100 hours of volunteer effort, the Little Scraggy Loop trail has been approved. Woo hoo! Located in the southeast corner of the Buffalo Creek Recreation Area, the 9 mile long loop trail will circumnavigate Little Scraggy Peak. Starting at Little Scraggy trailhead parking lot on Road 550 and connecting with the Colorado Trail near Morrison Creek, this area is currently only accessible on foot or horseback. Little Scraggy trail will open this new terrain to biking.  It will also connect Kelsey Campground with the Buffalo Creek trail network opening up new camping opportunities that were otherwise inconvenient.

Trail Work: September 14th-15th will be our first volunteer effort

Thanks go out to the many people (you know who you are) who generously contributed their time, including the numerous volunteers that spent hundreds of hours on the ground searching for a viable corridor. Also, the US Forest Service deserves a huge shout out for providing the behind the scenes resources to make this trail become a reality. And now the fun begins.

Even though it’s getting late in the season, we can’t wait to begin construction! The weekend of September 14th & 15th will be our first volunteer effort.  We may consider additional trail days in 2013 so stay tuned.  Mark your calendars for the Sept. 14th & 15th and plan on joining us. Details regarding the weekend will be available on the COMBA web site later this month.

We hope you’ll join us for the groundbreaking event and the kick off the construction of Little Scraggy trail which will be a great addition to an already stellar trail network.
