Connects the Taylor Creek Trail to Forest Road 2402 but effectively ends at the South Fork of Galice Creek due to a non existent bridge. Starts out fairly flat as it follows China Creek up from Taylor Creek. Trail then climbs up to and crosses Taylor Ridge Road (Forest Road 2500-001). The trail is mostly singletrack but includes portions of old roads as it approaches Taylor Ridge Road from either side. From Taylor Ridge Road, the trail climbs some more before descending all the way to the South Fork of Galice Creek. Although the trail continues past the creek, the creek is difficult to cross and this portion of the trail is in poor shape. The majority of the trail is under forest canopy. The portion of the trail that is along China Creek is very wet in the winter time.

Access Info

The main trailhead is on Forest Road 25. The trail can also be accessed from Taylor Ridge Road (Forest Road 2500-001
