A great creekside trail with wonderful scenery.

Features River/Creek

Family Friendly Easy grades and a short trail make this great for families but only when the water levels in the creeks are passable.

Not safe during heavy rain or flood conditions.

Description

Buffalo Creek Trail is a 6-mile long trail beginning at the Buffalo Creek trailhead on Cave Mountain Road Trail.

Start by following a doubletrack down toward Big Buffalo Creek. The Buffalo Creek Trail continues down Big Buffalo Creek with numerous creek crossings to its current terminus at the bottom of the Southern Slide Trail. The creek crossings can be tricky, and high water could prevent access to parts of this trail. DO NOT cross if you are at all uncertain of your ability to do so safely. The Buffalo Creek Trail follows an old homestead road down the creek. There are numerous old homesteads along the way. The Buffalo Creek Trail connects to the Red Star, Twisted Hickory, Wildcat Hollow, Zeester, Ancients and Southern Slide trails.
