Trail shared by Brandon Thrower

An excellent running trail that can give you access to the lower end of Shortoff Mountain and the Linville Gorge.

Description

The Blue Dot Trail is a higher water route for the MST's Linville River crossing. It is a great running trail and makes for a great out and back on its own, or it is a great option to avoid the long, tough gravel drive up Wolf Pit Rd to the Wolf Pit Trail if trying to do a run to Shortoff Mountain View and back.
