Overview

This rock crawling trail just north of the small town of Gypsum is riddled with large boulders the entire length of the trail, never allowing your undercarriage a break from the beating it will sustain. Rightfully named, this trail will do everything in its power to ensure your vehicle leaves the trail with crooked steering. Although not new, this trail was officially added and recognized by the BLM in 2016, making it one of the few opportunities offroaders get to seek out and explore new trail opportunities. This trail took serious work by the local off-road community to officially open, so please respect the area by staying on designated routes and picking up after yourself.
