High Point

This route is rated black/advanced for technical features, climbing/descending steepness and way-finding. Start at the Peak to Peak Highway and Magnolia Rd. Look for the singletrack on the north side of Magnolia and hop on Boot. Boot climbs through an open meadow and twists and turns through the forest to Reboot. At this intersection go left (right just takes you to Magnolia Rd). Reboot passes by several neighborhood trails, you'll want to stay right until you hit Reynolds Ranch Road, then go left (down). This next section gets a little tricky, turn right on Blue Dot, then follow the trail to the left, then right, left right to stay on Blue Dot. The trails hook up again if you miss a turn, but you'll want the Trailforks App loaded on your phone so you can check you didn't get completely turned around (there are very few trail signs out here!). There are a couple of trails that look like trails and then just stop, or you can end up down at Barker Reservoir with a steep climb out. Follow Blue Dot around and make a left at the next intersection.

This section of Blue Dot hits the iconic "car wash" section, as well as a steep hike-a-bike to get to the high point of the ride. The wooden bridge is rideable... for some. Keep following Blue Dot until you come to the Yellow Dot/Red Dot intersection. This loop can be ridden in either direction, but right/counterclockwise on Yellow Dot around to Red Dot has the steepest descent and more gentle climb. You'll hit this loop, then make your way back the way you came on Blue Dot. For variety and a great view, take the left onto Blue Dot Connector to Reboot, then a left, left, left to cross Reynold Ranch road and stay on Reboot. Take Reboot back to Boot (staying high and not taking the neighborhood trails to the right) and you'll find yourself back to where you started.
