"With its official ribbon cutting ceremony on July 16, 2016, the Little Scraggy Loop, which includes part of the Colorado Trail 1776 in its route, provides riders with a 13-mile microcosm of what the already lauded Buffalo Creek Mountain Bike Area has to offer. What sets this trail apart is the variety of interesting features it offers, making the entire loop a veritable smorgasbord of mountain biking delicacies. From smooth, flowy, sinuous singletrack through mixed conifer forests, to big and bold granite behemoths both embedded and beside the route, to rail-worthy high-banked berms, to tight and narrow tree- and rock-lined sections, the Little Scraggy Loop doles out a feast for the tires—one punctuated by the absence of any long, sustained slogs that would otherwise make a rider pay for all this mountain biking goodness."
