China Wall Staging Area

Area Status: Open
This area is Open
 

Closure notice: Loop 6, of the Foresthill OHV system, is closed at the “lower bridge”, due to major bridge damage by a large tree that fell this spring.  The trail is still open on both sides, but the bridge is impassable.

China Wall is used as a staging area in summer by 2-wheeled OHV dirt bikes and motorcycles. The trail is not wide enough to accomodate quad OHV's. In the winter China Wall is a staging area for snowmobiles, cross-country skiers, and snowshoe users. When there is snow on the ground it is an easy place for kids to play in the snow, but there are no designated sledding hills.
