Route Description for East Mag Dot Trails
The Dot Trails are hidden gems that are just east of the popular West Magnolia Trail system. The start for the Dot Trails is on the east side of the Peak to Peak Hwy, a few hundred feet down Magnolia Dr.
Boot Trail and Reboot are the first two trails you encounter. They gradually climb deeper into the forest, until you reach Pipeline Trail, an old Forest Service Road.
Cruise down Pipeline Trail for a few hundred feet until an unmarked right-hand turn presents itself. Take the turn onto Blue Dot Trail.
Blue Dot Trail is an out and back lollipop loop. Be prepared for a couple of challenging technical sections and the occasional hike-a-bike. The end of the lollipop is evident with a steep descent to a trail junction with a private property sign.
There is an equally steep ascent on your way back, as you eventually reconnect with the out-and-back trail. Retrace your tracks back to the trailhead.
