One of the longest single trails through Upper Park, Middle Trail climbs slowly away from the entrance all the way to the bottom of B Trail. Almost every ride on the North side of the creek will involve time on this trail. This trail is often used as a means of return from Live Oak, B Trail, etc to the intersection with Lower Trail. Middle Trail has some fast and flowy descents out near Salmon Hole as well as a couple hike-a-bike's out near B Trail. Closer to the front of the park, many water bars have been installed as well as outside gravel to control water. Many hikers can also be found on this trail.
