Blackjack and Raspberry Ridge Trails
The Blackjack and Raspberry Ridge Trails are sponsored by COMBA and were built in partnership with the US Forest Service, Front Range Mountain Bike Patrol (FRMBP), International Mountain Bicycling Association (IMBA) and local bike retailers and manufacturers.
Rasberry Ridge climbs to the ridge of hilly rocks overlooking the Sandy Wash Trail. It features climbing single track that utilizes as much of the natural rock as possible. Once at the top, get ready to experience the Black Jack Trail! Dropper seatposts recommended.
The trail has advanced features like drops, steep rollers, wall rides and other technical features, which utilize the unique local terrain found in Buffalo Creek
Alternate lines were built around the advanced features to make the trail accessible to a wide audience of experienced mountain bikers.
Many hours were put in by COMBA to make this trail a reality.
COMBA maintains an active relationship with the USFS in the Buffalo Creek recreational area and continues to pursue opportunities to strengthen that relationship.
