Summary:
I would've rated this trail higher but a lot of the stunts on it were in major disrepair. One ladder jump creek crossing was completely broken in two and if I had hit it I would've been seriously injured. It was disapointing to say the least. With some work though this could be a great trail. I did not see the 6' ladder drop anywhere (it may have been after the turn). I would've given it a five if the trail had been maintained properly.

Recommended Route:

This guy obviously doesn't know his right from left. If you turn left you'll be going away from Globe road (which is exactly what we did). You have to turn right up the hill towards Globe road to get back to your car (if you park where recomended). However, if you park at the end of China Creek then you can stay to the left and you'll come out on a gravel road. Turn right on that road and you'll cross a creek and ride up to Globe road with a short climb up to your car at China Creek. I haven't gone up the way the last guy recomends but that's because the trail he is talking about is on the RIGHT not the left.

Summary:
Sweetness

Recommended Route:
Ride down from canyons parking lot. after about 2 miles go left up a rock garden towards globe rd. (this can be found soon after you hit a creek jump and go over a huge dirt ramp on a massive down tree). If you fail to go left you will be ridding back up globe road looking for your car!
