Buffalo Mountain-White Rock Trail

Started with the Tip-top trail which forms part of a larger loop with this trail. Moderate hike in some places but mostly just an enjoyable hike with some stunning views of the region. When the fog starts rolling in its even better.

A very addictive trail if you like steep grades and amazing views. I have been hiking this the last couple of days after work around sunset and it'd been pretty amazing. It's one of the best cardio work outs I've done in a while. It's so close to Johnson City you can't go wrong.

Apparently this trail no longer offers off road driving. it has a trail that goes up the side of the mountain but it is blocked off. when I went to the trail head it said no motorized vehicles. I was really disappointed bc just driving to the trail head was very pretty and I wanted to test out my new Jeep. So, yeah... not open to vehicles anymore apparently.

I started today from Lone Oak Road going 2 miles and 1000 feet incline to Tip Top. That track was called Buffalo Mountain part 1. From there I went to White Rock and the radio towers on down to the alternate parking area and trail head. That was Buffalo Mountain part 2. From there i went to the main parking lot and took the Cascade trail to Tip Top again before descending the 22 mile trail to my car. My iphone ran out of batteries but I save the last track as Buffalo Mountain part 3. All in all it was 5 hours and probably 12 miles for which the last three were u tracked.

I completed this trail today as part of a grand loop of Buffalo Mountain. My track starts at Tip Top and goes to White Rock all the way down to the alternate trail head. Beautiful views to be seen on this trail.

I usually trail run here since it's so close to the city and few people know about it and even fewer want to venture there since the elevation gain is so steep. That being said, the trail provides many wonderful views and naturally makes for the toughest run that I've ever attempted. In any case, if you're looking for a good hike and you don't want to drive far from Johnson City then this is the perfect trail for you.

Beautiful trail system and the hiking is moderate. The views here are also spectacular.

The trail markers can be extremely confusing though and I found myself lost multiple times. Had it not been for my phone's gps, I would have had no clue how far out where I had gone.

Really pretty hike. I took some pictures but I don't see where to upload them easily. To get to the really good trails, keep driving up to the top. You can stop and park earlier and there are nice trails with good views, but not as good as up high!
