Description

Very rocky and technical loop around the beautiful Buffalo Mountain in Frisco, CO.  Beautiful views of the Gore Range up high and tough climb last two miles up to Eccles pass.  Did this route 3 days after I moved to Colorado and had the itch to come back and go for a FKT on it sometime.  Ended up being 2.5 months later.  Great views and singletrack through the Aspens.  Some of the descent is a little technical, and a tough punch back up after flying down the backside.  Good luck to the next attempts.  Hope to see it get knocked down sometime.  Had a big Moose chase me about 2.5 miles in, probably one of scariest moments in my life.

There is a Strava segment for the CCW run.  https://www.strava.com/segments/10705241
