Trail: Middle Thompson Trail #1950
Region: Crystal River Valley
Difficulty: moderate
Description: Middle Thompson Trail takes you through aspens and meadows with some wild flowers. Cattle graze in this area, so please leave gates in the position that you find them. Horses use the area all year long, especially during the fall hunting seasons. Please be considerate of other types of users.
Directions: From the Forest Service office in Carbondale, travel west past the stoplight, and follow road #108 for 7.4 miles. Turn left onto road #305, a dirt road that immediately heads downhill. Go 2.5 miles to a stream crossing, then uphill for about a mile to a pass. In another half mile take the right fork onto road #306. At the end of the railroad grade the road goes uphill a short distance to a parking area where you will want to park. Hike up the road a couple hundred feet to the trail on your right side. It is about 100 feet before the stream crossing.
