With MountainHikerette, we did West first, then over to East. Did better with following roads on the return. Recommend map, compass, GPS and knowing how to use them!

Great holidays that I spent in the mountains. First day, I hiked Jacque Peak and Pennsylvania Mountain. It was very smoky that day, first glimpse on the fire season. View of Tenmiles are great. Second day I hiked Tweto, Mosquito, Treasurevault, Repeater, Evans B and London. Great and long trip. Then I drove to the Buffalo Peak wilderness and my car broke. I was towed to Fairplay to have my car repaired but I had to wait till Tuesday. Then they fixed it soon enough that I was able to hike both East and West Buffalo Peaks. They are awesome. I was bushwhacking a lot on the way up East Bufff.

Elk, Bighorn Sheep, bear scat...plenty of wildlife on these less-traveled peaks. Loved this outing, makes for a good, scenic day. Elissa & Laraine are troopers. :-)

Hey Matt K,

Planning to go do east and west Buffalo peaks the first week of June. If you don't mind me asking, what was the weather like when you were up there last year in early June? Was there much snow? Thanks for any help you can give.

The "usual suspects" and I did the entire loop, and had a great day. One of the highlights of this trip was seeing a huge group of elk on the ridge in the distance.

lovely autumn day hiking the loop, east to west, with jamie and prakash. a little bit of snow higher up made a few short glissades possible descending the northwest slope of west buffalo.

We took a church group of teenagers on a wilderness outing. They all opted to fish while Mike and I climbed the Buffalo peaks from the West. And yeah we had to reclimb West Buffalo to get back. Oh well...

Climed these peaks together from the west via Fourmile Road outside of Buena Vista. Great views of the Sawatch, Northern Sangre and Mosquito Ranges. Cold and windy day, but definitely worth it!

This is my 4th time up,but this time I climbed with my wife Rene and our pomeranian dog Olivia who made it up to the top never needing to be carried once.It was spectacular as always, we saw a elk herd of f the back side in a meadow. I also found a 6 point elk antler drop fron ths season in beautyful shape that was a plus. Hope to do it again some day, this was my 50th birthday yr. so I hope to go again befor I'm 60.

What an awesome outing. A last minute change of plans for the holiday weekend landed us on the Buffalo Peaks. We hiked both summits along with UN 12,644 which was an added treat. Erin and Ryan names from last year were the most recent on the UN's summit log. We lucked up and made all the right turns on the old logging roads making for a problem free day.

Great peaks! Nice wilderness area.

Climbed both East and West Buffalo Peak summits in mid august of Colorado's driest year. The mountains were quite enjoyable. I regret that between only having a 16 mb memory card for the digital camera and dealing with latent smokiness from forest fires my photos fail to give the mountains their proper due. I had a blast none the less. Along with me were my dogs Sopris and Raymond. Jon Bradford
