    The Oldham Trail is a scenic route that leads you from Buffalo Park to the Dry Lake Hills, climbing along the western base of T V Hill. This hike shows off mountain views from the park and nice forest views on the trail. Dogs on leash are welcome and active families should be able to complete this hike.

    You’ll want to wear sturdy boots for this hike since the trail is quite rocky. Additionally, some of the junctions in this area aren’t marked well, so a GPS route can help you find your way if needed.

The route will hug the base of the mountain and follow its curvature, climbing very gently to its endpoint at the junction with the Elden Lookout Road.
