Buffalo Creek Wildlife Management Area

210615 Highway 71,
Gering, NE 69341

Buffalo Creek State Wildlife Management Area is located south/east of Gering in the Wildcat Hills area. To get there go south of Gering on Hiway 71 to County Road W and turn east. County Road W is before you go up the Wildcat Hills. Follow CR W, which curves around a few time, to CR 25. Turn south (right) on CR 25 to CR X which heads you back east. Stay on this road for a mile or so until you see a very small sign that says Wildlife Management Area. You will see small juniper trees along the road for a ways before the turn off. Turn south on this road and drive about a half mile until you see Wildlife Area Signs. There is a parking lot at the end of the road where you can park and walk in. There are several canyons that can be explored but the best place is probably at the small pond. Take the trail that heads south/west. It's about a mile walk to the pond. No motorized vehicles are allowed. There is also a east parking lot on Wright's Gap road a mile east and south.
