Buzzard Gulch Trails
Located southwest of Montrose, Colorado, the Buzzard Gulch trail network is popular with mountain bikers, hikers, trail runners, and horseback riders. The Buzzard Gulch Trail System is comprised of 12 miles of non-motorized singletrack winding through pinyon, juniper and sagebrush habitat managed by the Bureau of Land Management’s Uncompahgre Field Office. Most trails are appropriate for beginner to advanced mountain bikers and all abilities of hikers and horseback riders. Designated trails can be found on the kiosk map; they are also denoted by brown fiberglass signs along the trails to help orient trail users.
One can spend an hour or two enjoying these routes or enjoy a full day of riding by tying into the Lower Spring Creek trail system.
Summer day time temperatures can exceed 100 degrees. Bring plenty of water (at least one gallon per person per day) for you and your dog.
