Middle Wash is an easy and short, straight-through connector between Kodachrome and Rainbow Gardens, located only minutes outside of Las Vegas and within the Sunrise Mountain Special Recreational Management Area. The entire trail travels along a desert wash lined with large golfball-sized gravel. You can anticipate washboard sections, but this trail is easily traveled in 2WD by any high clearance vehicle. Although the trail offers sporadic views of the Frenchman Range and Lave Butte, this is not considered a scenic trail. No camping is allowed within the management area, and although you can find open camping areas to the south along South Hollywood Blvd, that location is often teeming with squatters.
