The "China Road" was the original road up the Animas River Valley toward the pass out of Durango. Apparently the road was named after a section of Asian-looking stoneworks assembled by the original work crew. The road winds above and along Lime Creek just below Molas Pass and Andrews Lake on US-550. There is limited roadside camping and excellent fly fishing on Lime Creek.
