Details

We hike the western half of segment 3 of the Colorado Trail south of Buffalo Creek.  We start at the Buffalo TH and head west for an out and back hike.  Grades are gentle.  We will probably encounter snow on the trail but this is not a snowshoe trip.  I am counting on some snow here to reduce the usual strong mountain bike presence in fairer weather.
