Yansing Gulch, previously known as Chinaman Gulch, is a very popular, difficult rock crawling trail ideal for testing the limits of modifieds vehicles. Minimal snow to the area makes it a great location for winter wheeling. There are many obstacles and rocks to play on along this 4wd trail, many of which provide multiple lines from easy to hard. Although not very scenic, the occasional views of the Collegiate Peaks are astonishing. This trail is a great trail for groups as the main obstacles provide enough room for vehicles to pull out of the way and watch other vehicles attempt the obstacle.

Take Highway 285 to Johnson Village. There are gas stations there where you can fill up if you need to. Just east of town between the rafting building and mile marker 214, you'll see county road 301 heading south. Take that road for 1.6 miles till you see a red barn and house on your right. Just before the barn, across the road to your left, you'll see a green gate marked "Prison Property" that runs in a straight line towards the mountains and an open area (you can see this open area from the main road). You will also see a small BLM sign marking the direction to Yansing Gulch and Carnage Canyon. Go down that road, and after about a half-mile, you reach the open parking area where you can prepare your rig for the trail.
