"The Buffalo Trail begins at the Maple Springs Trailhead and uses old roads in its westward quest to meet the Good Spring Loop Trail, passing old homesites along the way. Toward its end, it makes quite a few twists and turns as it meanders along roads that once skirted the property lines where settlers had homes. The trail’s highlights include homesites and sink, and while it sees moderate use the trail condition is good."
