    Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

    "On this low-key but potentially strenuous forest hike, starting from an easily accessible trailhead near I-70 and Silverthorne, walk a rugged mile to what’s left of an old cabin. Admittedly it’s not a super-exciting hike and doesn’t have the most compelling story, but Buffalo Cabins Trail is worth a go. Cabin ruins near mile 1 make a natural turn-
    around for a quick but blood-pumping hike with some steep, rooty sections.

    Those who need more than that have come to the right place. The trail continues from the cabin to the top of Buffalo Mountain, picking its way steeply through a boulder field, then perusing gently sloped alpine tundra to get there. Views, of course, are outstanding from the summit trail; below the cabins the trail is ensconced in the dark forest."
