Trail Information


Located just north of Lake George, CO, Little China Road is a simple road in the rolling dirt of the Pike National Forest. The trail runs through the forest near the Tarryall Mountains and is a third of the way into the Box Road and China Wall Road. This short jaunt is nice to help expand upon the more popular trails nearby. Enjoy Little China Road's bit of local scenery, less traffic than nearby trails, and little less dust in the air.

Checking on trails in the area. Just a little seasonal wash. No major changes.

This trail was fairly easy, but I would give it slightly more than the "2" high end rating, just for the ruts. Some can get pretty deep and may hang up a lower clearance vehicle. The final short hill up to the clearing for China Wall trail was fairly rutted as well. For my Power Wagon on 35's, none of it was an issue, but a stock height Subaru or the like may scrape in a few spots. We exited on the main China Wall trail back to the main road, and this is certainly a more exciting way to get to China Wall.

Easy and scenic alternative to taking 77 to the trailhead of China Wall.

This trail is open, however, CAUTION. Colorado weather is unpredictable this time of year and there may be the occasional fresh snow fall or mud and melting snow. This trail is in an area of the state where snowfall levels have dropped for the season and the majority of the trails are dry, muddy and/or only have a small bit of snow on them. Again, please use caution if traveling on these trails until the dryer season.

This trail isn't that exciting onto itself, though it is my preferred way to get into the China Wall trails. Also a nicer ride out and bypasses some of the main road.
