It is a good time to do this hike. We will start from the Blue Dot Trail at Overlook Park in White Rock. Then hike south along the mesa top to the trail head for Red Dot. Descend Red Dot trail into the canyon and hike along the Rio Grande upstream to the Blue Dot and ascend to the starting point. We will have lunch/snack by the small pond waterfall.
This is rated moderate because the Red and Blue Dot trails are steep and rocky with an elevation change of 900' in 1 mile.
What to bring: Dress in light layers. But, this time of year be prepared for sudden changes in weather.
- water, always, of course
- poles, if you have them.
We will meet outside Java Joe's and car pool from Java Joe's to the the trail head in White Rock. If you are running a late or lost call Dave's cell[masked]-7557.
