Overview

The Fourmile Creek Trail follows the Fourmile Creek drainage north toward the Buffalo Peaks Wilderness Area. The road zig-zags between rock formations and connects to several other Fourmile Area trails as it climbs in elevation. The views of Buffalo Peaks, West Buffalo at 13,332' and East Buffalo at 13,300', on the way in are plentiful, and the views of the Collegiate Peaks and the Arkansas River Valley on the way out are equally as impressive. Near the end of the road, there are some camping areas, or you can park and hike the trail that leads farther north toward Buffalo Meadows.
