Trails End - Middle Fork Gila Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This relatively short overland backpack from East Fork to Middle Fork samples some of the stark differences between both Gila forks while avoiding a 70-mile shuttle between trailheads. The uplands offer expansive vistas of distant mountains and ridges with many side trip options.

This is a nifty, efficient shortcut that gets you into the heart of the Gila forks, omitting hours (and miles) of driving. Once you reach the Middle Fork, you can extend your trip infinitely."
