Buffalo River Trail

Thursday, May 16, 2019

Alt Names

Riviere De Beeufs, Trout Creek, Rossman Creek, Big Creek

Last Known StatusOpen

This 36-mile long multiple use trail follows the highway and the meandering Buffalo River. There is one staging area in Modovi and one in Fairchild which both offer direct trail access.

The trail mainly consists of an old railroad trestle that is fairly smooth and hardpacked with nice views of surrounding farms, making it a good choice for novice riders. The trail is open year round and is open to snowmobiles during the winter months. Dirt bikes and scooters are not permitted on this trail.
