Buffalo Mountain Trail
Printable Map (PDF), Page with Video of Trail. More Pictures.
Length: 112.9 Miles
Community Connector: Yes
Buffalo Mountain has evolved from basically a three-legged star with each spur going to a destination into an arching loop with multiple options along the way. Has the most single track of any of the systems. Generally an easier system on all but the orange trails, similar to Indian Ridge and Pinnacle Creek. Erosion has caused the extreme and black trails to become more difficult over time, more so than Pinnacle/Indian. Most single tracks are extreme difficult with rocky ledges, step-outs and many sections where a trials bike is more appropriate. Trails added in 2010/2011, system is constantly expanding. Gas, food and lodging in Williamson and Matewan and Delbarton.
