Highlights

Highlight: Little China Road
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.

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.

Mapping Crew - Colorado

Jen & JD moved to Colorado from Chicago in May of 2015 for work and brought with them a 2001 stock Jeep Wrangler that had been garage bound for two years. Within a month of arrival, all rusty 170,000 miles of it was shaking on Colorado trails and they've never stopped. As time as gone on, their 2001 TJ had to be traded and a 2015 Jeep JK has been added to the family. JD works as a Systems Engineer for a cable company and Jen runs a business from their home during the week to pay the bills. When the weekend hits, they're almost always hitting the trail. When Sunday night rolls around, the question turns to, 'so what's next week?!'.
