Trail Overview

Buckhorn Traverse starts at the east end of Buckhorn and is a similar trail with many wide switchbacks and fun curves on a series of rolling low alpine hills. There are more switchbacks than on the Buckhorn trail, which makes it slightly more difficult, but they are wide. A couple of them have loose dirt and are tighter. Overall it's an easy trail that is mostly smooth with no obstacles. It's a very popular ride for mountain bikers as well.

Difficulty

This is an easy single-track trail with several easier switchbacks.
