Middle Kingdom is hidden gem amongst all the other stellar trails at Curt Gowdy. It starts along Canyons Starts at Canyons near the north end of Crystal Ridge.

Riding clockwise the route starts with a moderate climb up through a small gully that has rocky walls and a small aspen grove. As the climb tops out it wraps around a high hidden meadow and then disappears into another stand of trees.

After a bridge crossing Middle Kingdom opens up to fantastic views and large slabs of granite. Traverse for a short bit before descending back to Canyons. You'll have the open to take the trail or experience one of a few different gravity lines down to the bottom.
