Mostly good footing. The steeper sections are runnable, just be careful of footing.
Starting at the end of the Blue Dot Trail (#606.1)
, continue in either direction to make a quite pleasant loop. It is a quiet area out there though you may see some mountain bikers on the trails. There are several offshoots that are not mapped but worth exploring.
There is one offshoot that leads to signed private property. Please respect the signage. Several rocky outcrops provide some nice views of the alpine Indian Peaks. Return to the car via the Blue Dot Trail (#606.1)
after running the Red Dot Trail (#357.2B)
Flora & Fauna
Mixed pine and Aspen with a large meadow area midway.
