We are back and on Saturday, October 26th, we’ll continue our work on the newest trail in Buffalo Creek. We finished about half of the Kelsey Campground loop on our last work day and our goal is to finish it before the snow flies. Time permitting, we’ll continue north working on the Little Scraggy loop. The main tread is already cut, so our focus will be finishing the trail tread using hand tools. We provide the tools and guidance so there’s no experience necessary.
We’ll have our usual post-work BBQ and feel free to bring your bike and go for a ride.
Come help out Bear Creek before Take a Kid Mountain Biking Day, next Wednesday, October 2nd, we will assist the City of Lakewood to remove debris and provide trail maintenance for the flood damaged trails.
Our second work day on lower Sandy Wash trail will take place on Saturday, August 17th. We’ll spend about 4 hours completing the work we started in July. This will consist mostly of better water management and flow line improvements. After the trail work, we’ll hang out and relax over a BBQ or feel free to jump on your bike and go for a ride. We provide the tools and guidance so there’s no experience necessary.

Denver Parks and Recreation has been working to improve mountain biking opportunities in parks and greenways of Denver, CO. One of the achievements of this work is a proposal for a world-class mountain bike park in Ruby Hill Park. Ruby Hill may not be as widely known as other parks in Denver, but with a host of improvements coming as part of a second phase of master planning, including the bike park and an open air event pavilion, it is on the path to becoming one of Denver’s greatest parks.
Thanks so much for volunteering to join us this weekend for our Buffalo Creek celebration. It should be a great time. Don't forget to bring your own lunch and water (we will be packing our lunches into the work site), sturdy work clothes and boots, and your bike! Dinner will and beer will be provided on Saturday night. A light breakfast will be served on Sunday morning. There will be an optional night ride on Saturday night, bring a light and your bike if you wish to join.
What project will we be working on?
We'll be doing maintenance on lower Sandy Wash trail on Saturday morning. If you're familiar with Buffalo Creek, you know that Sandy Wash is a distance from our weekend headquarters, Miller Gulch trailhead. So we have several options to get there.

Thanks to all of you who have expressed interest in assisting with the construction of the new Little Scraggy trail in the Buffalo Creek Recreation Area. We greatly appreciate your willingness to get involved but unfortunately, we cannot begin construction yet. We are still waiting for the final approval from the multiple government agencies involved. The process is taking longer than originally expected and it’s beyond our control. So, we have to cancel this coming build weekend (6/22-23). The good news is we are so close we can taste it.
Our next build weekend is scheduled for July 27th & 28th and we have fingers and toes crossed that the I’s will be dotted and T’s crossed and construction can begin. Please stay tuned for future updates and thanks in advance for your patience and understanding.
