Trail Difficulty and Assessment

Trail Navigation

China Wall in the Pike National Forest is a 3.8-mile out-and-back dirt and rock track. There are several obstacles with no bypasses. If you don’t go slow and follow the right lines, you will hit bottom on this one. This trail gets very little snow in the winter, so it will be one of the first to open in the spring.

Do not underestimate China Wall itself. People have rolled on that obstacle.

DId this trail today by ourselves. Enjoyed, but it was a really simple trail with four fun obstacles to play on. The obstacles were different enough that you could do them several times on separate lines. Glad we were the only one on trial so we could run them several times. Only one of them did not have a bypass. We saw one other vehicle on the trail on a Saturday afternoon in July.

Tough obstacles followed by scenic meadows and a river made this trail quite enjoyable. I was glad to have a competent spotter on all of the large obstacles. Had lunch by the river and exited via Box Road.

Great trail, options to test your skill and vehicle limits depending on the lines you take. I was able to run all obstacles in my Frontier without issue, 4" lift, 33" tires, high clearance front/rear bumpers and rock sliders. Without the lift and high clearance rear bumper I would have been dragging.
