DuPont State Recreational Forest is a very popular multiuse, bi-directional trail system, so be on the lookout for hikers, horses, and other cyclists. It is normally open in any weather although it can close in extended periods of freeze / thaw during the winter.

Description

This trail features singletrack with several tight switchbacks and a small creek crossing. When you bottom out at the river, it is best to walk across on the large rocks placed for that purpose. Post river crossing, the trail climbs fairly gently to the crest of the ridge and then falls along the ridge into a small gorge. It then runs out along the river to one stream inlet of Lake Julia. The top section of this trail is usually fairly dry and even a little sandy, but the downhill technical sections can be a little wet, though not as bad as Pisgah.

Standing water on the trails but solid trail surface underneath, some wet leaves and wet roots, some mud. Creeks are high and fast. Ridgeline was dry 16.7mi — 2h 00m
