Dog on a Buffalo  Sucess!

I often find myself watching a Youtube video entitled "Guy on a Buffalo." Why is that humans feel that they get to do all the fun things. I decided that if he can be a guy on a Buffalo, then why can't I be a dog on a Buffalo. And it was that thought that the dream of climbing buffalo was birthed.

So autumnal  Sucess!

This made for a fine post-work/pre-supper jaunt. The leaves are ablaze, and the air was crisp. Delightful!

Nice hike   Sucess!

My FB picture is from the 18th but I may have done this on the 15th since I remember it was a Sunday, how do we get there? I dont know I was following my human "gps".

Amazing Wildflowers  Sucess!

The Balsam Root was super spectacular in the meadows here, and such a quick easy summit if you are in Utah County with awesome views, great little hike on a date. I have done it 3 times!

Nice easy hike  Sucess!

Got a puppy 5 days ago, and I've taken him out hiking every day. He's just 6 weeks old and gonna be a great little hiking companion. This was his first summit. Nice easy hike from the access road.

Nice hike  Sucess!

I take all the cub scouts and young boy scouts on this hike as an introduction to hiking. Easy and rewarding views

Fun night run  Sucess!

Took about 15 minutes.
One year I ran from the start of Rock Canyon to within 5 minutes of the top when I stepped through a den of rattlesnakes. There were four of them. Turned around after shooting all the adrenaline in my body.

From the Road  Sucess!

Well it was a fun walk from the road. Takes about 15 minutes, great for all the non-hikers out there.

Buffalo  Sucess!

Squaw Peak road still had a few patches of snow blocking it so I decided to go to Buffalo Peak.

Twofer  Sucess!

I jogged up to the summit in a few minutes and then went down the rock slide to hit the squaw peak trail. It took a bit to get there, but it was lovely; lots of birds and such. I bushwacked my way back up to get the trail back to the road and it was pretty terrible, but still fun! I got covered in spider webs.

From SP overlook  Sucess!

Listed on the main page for this peak as Rout 3. This route is about 2 miles one way about 1400 ft elevation gain. Made this feel like more of an accomplishment than just parking .2 miles away. Great little morning hike. Took my wife with me. It was her first time hiking up to a peak. =) I think she's excited to go bag some more this summer.

Multiple Summits  Sucess!

I've climbed this multiple times, with the most recent being April 21, 2012. We made it in the 4x4 about 1/2 mile from the Route 1 trailhead. Walked up the snowy road from there and then on the trailhead. There was no snow once we reached the T intersection. Quick trip-took our time and still less than an hour round trip. Driving took longer.

from Squaw Peak Road  Sucess!

I combined this with a hike of Squaw Peak in the same trip.

Nice Views  Sucess!

June 4, 2016 - From the Squaw Peak Jeep Trail with Jacob and Jakub.

May 22, 2016 - Started in Rock Canyon at 10:45 am summited before 12:30 am. Hung out and returned to car by 2:20 pm.

Oct 21, 2012 - went for a drive and took a few minutes out to wander up this little peak. I like the view over to Squaw Peak.


Apr 15, 2012, Started at Rock Canyon on the same trail as Squaw Peak. At the Hamongong where the Squaw trail turns left to head west we headed east and bushwacked our way up the west ridge of Buffalo Mtn to the peak. It took less than 3 hours to reach the peak. Next we headed down the standard summer trail on the east side taking us to the Squaw Peak road. There was still a foot of snow on the road and we followed it to Rock Canyon Campground and made our way down Rock Canyon back to the trailhead. R/T, at a lesiurely pace, was 5 hours.

Re: Good kids hike

Eric, are you cool with the link to your trip report in the external links section?

Re: Good kids hike  Sucess!

Always. Great! Dean and ZeeJay added some pictures as well, putting them on the main page would improve it as well.
