Trail Overview

Buckhorn is a fun and easy single track that goes through a mix of sagebrush and scrub oak and small trees near Carbondale, Colorado. It traverses across the sides of a bunch of rolling hills, with lots of big snaking curves that go down the hillsides. It has lots of big wide switchbacks that are great for standing balance practice. It's an easy trail that would be very fun for a beginner. The terrain is really pretty in fall with the changing colors of the oak brush. This area is great in fall and spring because it gets almost too hot to ride here in summer. This trail is very popular for mountain bikers in both directions.

Difficulty

This is an easy single-track trail with a couple of easy switchbacks.
