The Dots are located in between Boulder Canyon Road and Magnolia Road just east of Nederland. These trails get their name from occasional "dot" markers on trees - the dots are the tops off of tin cans, spray painted different colors... that should give you a little insight on the bootlegger origins of the fabulously rugged trail area.

The Dots provide a great contrast to West Mag, which lies just to the... west. These trails are older multiuse trails and as such are straighter, faster, and occasionally, much more technical. Expect loose decomposed granite, some incredibly difficult to ride embedded rock, and short steep climbs. Also, there’s some great meadows, younger forests, and views to Nederland and Longs Peak. Navigation is fairly straightforward, with trails leading east from the Peak to Peak towards a loop that turns you back west.

In addition to the trails that roughly parallel Magnolia Road, there’s also the Dog/Doe Trail and Bear Down/Star Wars Trail that each lead downhill towards Barker Reservoir and adjacent neighborhoods. Not only are they a blast to ride, they provide a great way back to Ned for some vittles and brews.
