The Buffalo Ridge Trail is currently an almost 1.5 mile trail connecting The Village at Grand Traverse Commons to Traverse City West Middle School and the YMCA, passing by the TBA-ISD main office and conference center, the Historic Barns Park and the Botanic Garden. When completed, the proposed 4.5-mile trail will connect the west and southwest areas of Traverse City.
The Buffalo Ridge Trail is part of a network of trails nestled between Silver Lake Road and US-37. In addition to Buffalo Ridge Trail, the Safe Routes to School path between Wyatt and Barnes Roads was completed in fall of 2012. Shortly thereafter, Garfield Township and the Joint Recreation Authority completed the Barns Trail. The Barns Trail runs parallel to Silver Lake Road and connects the Buffalo Ridge Trail from Silver Drive to the Safe Routes path at Barnes Road.
