Buffalo Campground Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"So many of the best national forest campgrounds are high in the Rockies, where the weather and roads can be rough. Buffalo Campground, at 7,400 feet, is high enough to escape the heat of the lowlands, but not so high that you'll be dressing for winter in July.
A network of trails, including the Colorado Trail, winds through the immediate area of ponderosa pines and strange rock formations that burst from the needle-carpeted forest floor. This haven in the Pike National Forest in only 70 miles from the metropolitan Denver area.
Buffalo is a quick getaway for metro Denver-area mountain bikers, hikers, and families."
