Trail Overview

GWB is a 4-mile long trail off of Buff Pass in Steamboat Springs, Colorado. It's a fun, fast, and flowy trail through a forest of aspen trees and meadows full of wildflowers. It's a very curvy trail full of tight switchbacks, but they are gradual and smooth as it climbs up a hillside. The landscape is incredibly scenic and very green in the summer. It's mostly smooth with a few embedded medium-sized rocks and roots, but no major obstacles, and unlikely to have downed logs. The dirt is pretty loose, so it's very dry and dusty. There are two segments of the trail separated by a dirt road, but both entrances are well-signed and easy to follow. This trail takes about a half hour to ride in one direction without stopping, and you can ride it in connection with the more difficult Flash of Gold singletrack in order to make it a longer ride. There are only 3 dirt bike trails in this vicinity, making your whole ride only about an hour long, but you can explore more of Buff Pass or ride the trail as an out and back to make it a longer ride. It's worth checking out this trail if visiting Steamboat, or it's great for a quick morning or afternoon ride for the locals. There is a big car park on Buff Pass right near the west entrance to the trail.
