“A mostly forested trail leading from the parking area on Magnolia to the Dots Loop.”— John Scalese
The trail itself is very enjoyable that will put any runner in a quiet setting. Several rock outcroppings afford opportunities to see alpine areas and provide views of the Indian Peaks.
A couple smaller meadow areas will have birds singing. There are a couple of rough, unmarked trails leading both north and south from this, have fun and explore.
Ultimately, this leads to the Yellow/Red Dot Loop making this part of a longer lollipop loop.
