Highlights

Highlight: Echo Valley Road
Located in Pike National Forest on the outer edge of the Buffalo Creek Recreation Area is Echo Valley Road. This beautiful drive through thick Colorado pines is a great way to get away from the summer sun. The Buffalo Creek Recreation Area covers nearly 25 square miles of multi-use trails and camping. Most of these trails directly connect to the famous Colorado Trail (FS 1776) and locally, 50 miles of hiking and biking trails. If you want to spend some time in the Buffalo Creek Recreation Area but stay away from the masses, this trail will get you away from the main roads and off into the Colorado forest.

JD Marshall

Mapping Crew - Colorado

Jen & JD moved to Colorado from Chicago in May of 2015 for work and brought with them a 2001 stock Jeep Wrangler that had been garage bound for two years. Within a month of arrival, all rusty 170,000 miles of it was shaking on Colorado trails and they've never stopped. As time as gone on, their 2001 TJ had to be traded and a 2015 Jeep JK has been added to the family. JD works as a Systems Engineer for a cable company and Jen runs a business from their home during the week to pay the bills. When the weekend hits, they're almost always hitting the trail. When Sunday night rolls around, the question turns to, 'so what's next week?!'.
