Little Scraggy Trail

Little Scraggy

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.

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.

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
