Red Dot/Yellow Dot Loop

Trail Meter: 

This loop lies at the easternmost extreme of the Dot Trails.  Pound around the loop and be prepared for some unannouced switchbacks as well as loose rocks, steep uphills/downhills, and a big fat smile on your face.

If you come across undesignated trails coming off of the Yellow/Red Dot Loop, BMA recommends that you do not follow them as they will quite quickly run you into private property and some potentially irate neighbors.  Keep it legal and stay on designated trails, muchas gracias.

Trail in much better shape than expected -- it's all ride-able. Picked up a few down trees and stay alert for a few deep ruts on the Yellow Dot descent. Should be good riding until the snows come.

Actual condition of the trail is unknown, but closure has been lifted.
