Description

From the rocky doubletrack climb of Bowen Gulch Trail #119 keep an eye open for the singletrack start of the Blue Lake Trail on your right. The trail has a worn signpost that isn't the most obvious..

The trail starts gradually for the first 0.5 miles before starting a more steady climb with a couple steeper sections. You'll reach Blue Lake about 1 mile in, and the trail continues on for approximately another two miles, continuing to climb up to Mineral Point.
