Description

Starting from an intersection with the Dots Access Road, Yellow dives into a thick aspen grove from the open meadow. After some relatively easy skinny-singletrack rolling, the trail exits the aspens and begins to climb.

After two 1' step-ups, the trail works its way into sparse conifer forest where it finally crests the climb. Get ready, this is one of the gnarlier descents in the Dot trail system! After pounding over roots and loose rocks, the trail winds its way west becoming easier along the way until it reaches Red Dot Trail.
