For the 2018 Epic at Buffalo Creek the Colorado Trailblazers will be partnering again with our good friends at the S. Platte Ranger District for FridaySaturday and Sunday, 9/14-16/18. The Meadows Group Campground is reserved for those camping Friday and/or Saturday nights.  For 2018 the Trailblazers will be targeting some much needed trail maintenance on the extreme lower west side of the Green Mountain Trail just above the Meadows Campground.  A continental breakfast is provided on Saturday morning, followed up in the evening with a hot catered dinner around the campfire and a hot catered breakfast on Sunday morning.  Adult beverages generally show up on Friday in the campground. Trail day access is great, i.e., short hike directly from the campground, where the Trailblazers will be staging crews on Saturday!  Please review a bit of detail below for our 2018 Epic at Buffalo Creek.
