Trail Information

Highlights

A true hidden gem in the Gypsum Hills area, Middle Middle is an exciting new rock crawling trail that will push your modified rig to its limits. Although not newly created, the trail was officially recognized by the BLM as a legal route in 2016. This trail is unique to the Colorado portfolio of trails as it provides a number of different obstacles like large boulders, undercut ledges, and waterfall climbs all within a short mile. Located just east of Colorado's youngest volcano, The Dotsero Volcano, you are bound to come across large chunks of volcanic rock. This difficult, high clearance trail changes often with help from severe weather that constantly fills in or washes out ruts and moves boulders at will throughout the canyon. Flash flooding is a real concern on this trail, so be aware of the weather conditions. 37" Tires, a winch, and dual lockers are highly recommended for this trail

If you are in heavily modified rigs, this trail will take you an hour max, give or take some minutes. It was extremely dusty and dry when we went this time. The turn off at waypoint 1 has had all of the sage brush cut down. I'm sure it will grow back in no time, but it doesn't give the seclusion for camping that it did before. Fun day. Trails are just as hard as usual.

Ran the trail in the LJ on 40s and a buggy on 39s. Finished in just under an hour. Great trail with some big boulders and fun obstacles. My favorite it the last one.
