    It's Open!

    Weather? What weather? Turned out to be a great trail building day and we finished the last bit of trail in under two hours. Wow! Raspberry Ridge and Blackjack are now officially opened at Buffalo Creek.

    The last picture just doesn't show how steep that roll really is.

    I was wondering what camera you were using these days (Photome told me).

    It varies by day, but the LX3 is still my favorite. Though, on a nice day, this sx210 can do a good job and it's more compact. Cameras and bikes are my vice. Ok, beer too.

    Stand way back with a lot of zoom and make it look steep for us.

    I wished I could have made it.

    Thanks to all you peeps for making this real.

    When it was finally time to ride, the sky opened up an let the sun shine. AWESOME day! Great ride too - challenging, technical, FUN!!! My new go-to loop is going to be 543, Baldy, Gas house, Charlies, Homestead, Raspberry, Blackjack, Homestead, Sandy, 543. I'll probably through in Morrison, CT, etc for the longer days. oh.. the sweetness!

    The FS didn't make you wear hard hats? They're getting pretty picky about it here. We're probably going to have to buy a box of them for our own projects from now on.

    Anyway, good work to everyone who contributed from those who worked through the planning process to those who showed up to move dirt (and rocks)

    I remember thinking that spot looked really hairy last year. What line exactly did you take? Go down the rock on the left (as you look down), then stay right towards the bottom?

    Great work, guys. I wish I could have been there for the final day.

    Hard to believe Buffalo Creek could get any better.
    Thanks to all who made this new addition.

    A huge thanks to all the volunteers who came out yesterday and the other 17 trails days that COMBA held to create Raspberry Ridge and Blackjack trails and re-route Charlie's and Homestead. Total construction time was 23 months and well worth all the effort. Special thanks goes to Terry Breheny, Jason Bertolacci and the rest of COMBA for taking on such a special project back in 2009. And last but certainly not least, Scott Dollus, Christopher Jones and crew and the rest of the good folks of the USFS on the Pike Nat'l. Forest deserve special praise. Without their unwavering support for MTBers in Buff Ck, none of the new BC trails would be possible.

    Updated maps will be available soon but the trails are open so get out and ride.
