Title: Buffalo Mountain "Playground"
Post by: tbeall on October 22, 2014, 10:10:11 AM
Is the playground that large flat mountain top that is no longer on the maps?  We rode over there anyway, if that's it, it is a shame that is no longer part of the system.

Is it the one that overlooks the coal mining operations in the valley? Last time we were there, this past Spring, that tail was closed off. No idea as to why. We always liked riding that one. Great scenery and great for those Kodak moments :)

That was a highlight of our BM ride for me, was down there in May.  It was an extremely wet day, would like to go back when it's clear.  Three states, Punisher?  That's interesting, I didn't know that.
