Trail Overview

Short, but extreme! Tie Rod Bender provides the ultimate challenge for the most experienced riders. Give yourself plenty of time to take it slow on the hardest obstacles. Want something even more difficult? Check out Middle Middle trail and Upper Middle trails nearby. All OHVs must have a permit even if you have a license plate. Open all year.


Extremely difficult. Giant loose boulders 2 to 4 feet in size. Rollovers and vehicle damage are common occurrences. Winch, lockers, roll cage and very large tires a must.

Access Description

Take I-70 to Gypsum, Exit 140. From north side of exit, head north uphill on County Road 51. First part of road accesses the Eagle Gypsum Mine, so watch for fast-moving trucks. At 3.1 miles, on a sharp turn uphill, the unmarked trail starts on right side of the road. Limited parking at trailhead.
