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.
