“If you enjoyed and survived China Ditch, why not try this side, too?”
— Joseph States
This trail starts near the upper end of Beck's Ditch (China Ditch) W600
and parallels it on the west side, and is a great second, harder pass at this canyon. The trail makes a challenging loop with connections to H600
(trail to Reynolds Creek) and BLM Road 37164
that can take you back up to the north end of Beck's Ditch.
If you head off to Upper Reynolds Creek on H600
, keep in mind that ATV and motorcycles will be on the trail as well. This side has a bit more tricky spots and is mostly unused as people generally take the easier way out.
