Trailwork Buffalo Creek

The Colorado Mountain Bicycle Association is dedicated to building new singletrack trails and helping land mangers maintain current trails.  COMBA started out as the Trail Conservation Services in 1991 maintaining trails and to this day building and maintaining trails in one of our main goals.  In 2013 alone COMBA volunteers put in over 1100 hours working on trails.

We have a strong paternership with the USFS in the Platte River Ranger District which has enabled us to work with the USFS to build, maintain and reroute many miles of single track in the Buffalo Creek Recreation Area. In 2011 COMBA completed the Black Jack and Rasberry Ridge trails, the first trails to be completely built by a mountain bike advocacy organization in the Buffalo Creek area.  With those trails under our belt we worked with the USFS to get approval for a new trail circumnavigating Little Scraggy peak, and in 2013 we broke ground on the Little Scraggy trail which includes a loop around Kelsey Campground and will add another 9 miles of buff singletrack to the area. In 2014 we expect many trail building days for volunteers to help us complete this trail.

For the last 3 years COMBA has teamed with the City of Lakewood for National Trails Day to work on Green Mountain.  Once again in 2014 COMBA will renew this partnership with Lakewood with a reroute of upper Green Mountain Trail.

We are entirely a volunteer lead and run organization. If you want to see great trails built and maintained in the Colorado Front Range, please join us at a volunteer work day in conjunction with one of our current projects. Work days are often paired with educational trail building workshops run by organizations like the US Forest Service and IMBA. Explore all the projects we are currently working on in the "Our Projects" tab.
