Beautiful area but hard to stay on the intended trail. After you descend down, you cross over the pipeline intersection and head towards the mountain. There are a lot of small off trails so I’m not certain I actually stayed on the intended trail or not. But.. it was beautiful and great views of Flagstaff. I’ll try it again soon!

Great for trail running!

I enjoyed my walk around Buffalo Park. Scenic vistas. Elk. Easy trail for me. No mountains to climb! I will go there again.

I run/hike this trail at least 3 times a week. Perfect for getting your heart pumping with beautiful views of Flagstaff.

Nice and easy

I’ve run many trails in the west and this is now one of my favorites. Super fun single track with runable flats and enough climbing to be challenging but not to tough. Great views of Flagstaff from the trail.

Moderate rating justified. For beginners the distance might make this a bit too much. Loved the views of boulders and caves.

Very short and next to nothing to look at. Would probably be a nice walking trail with a friend to chat with or music to listen to but definitely not the "hike" I was looking for.

My husband and I did this hike yesterday, and we both enjoyed it. Nice brief inclines that get the blood flowing, and gorgeous views of the forest. A nice little challenge for this 33 weeks pregnant lady :-)

Oldham Trail is not a loop trail it’s an out and back trail
Hiked the Oldham trail with my wife and our Daughters dog, Wilber. The trail was a relaxing moderate hike, we both enjoyed it. The weather was perfect for a hike. The trail is made of loose dusty dirt in parts, very little roots, many rocks and rock outcroppings.
Note: we started the hike where this app/map indicated where the trailhead was located. This was not the case, with that said we ended the hike in the Buffalo Park parking area.

Easy peasy. Nice scenery. Leisurely stroll. Even saw folks with strollers. Many deer. A couple of geocaches.

Beautiful trail. Good for walking, hiking, running, and biking. Lots of intersecting trails to change things up.

Great hike as there are no rocks to maneuver around. Go early as it gets busy.

This was my first time hiking Elden from this side of the mountain and starting in the park. As soon as I got out of the park and on to the trail i got lost.
As soon as you get to the top of a slope there's a yellow sign for the gas pipeline, that's what I took, the trail is actually top the left and there is a trail marker I didn't see.
once on the trail you're golden but it's easy to get lost as there are a lot of trails or personally made paths that intersect Oldham. I did lower, which round trip is 6 mi, I ended up doing 8 mi+ with the round abouts and I did start upper Oldham but turned back as that would have endured up being almost 11 mi round trip that I want prepared for.
This hike definitely is moderate, with some good ups and downs that'll get your heart beating. I can't wait to explore more.

Very beautiful trail. Pretty easy moderate.

Great easy trail nice views

No trees, too much sun. The view at the far end of the trail was beautiful. Had activities through the entire trail as well.

we were in Flagstaff for vacation and got I had a gallbladder attack, but couldn't handle being trapped in the cabin. Buffalo Park is beautiful, and easy enough for me to walk a few miles while enjoying the fresh air.

We took 2 dogs down there and there were a lot of trail to choose from. The place was very clean and the scenery was beautiful

Good trail for running, easy hike, or walking with dogs and kids etc. Only thing is that 95% of the trail is in the open with no shade. So on a hot afternoon its not that great. There are little obstacle course activities along the trail too which is cool.

The scenery is gorgeous and peaceful.I will definitely return!
