“A great ride through Dupont that samples a couple great downhills.”

Ridgline is one of the funnest, fast and flowy downhill trails in the area and this loop is a nice, quick 6 mile loop that finishes with it.
Start at the Lake Imaging parking area and wind around to climb the Jim Branch Trail. This beautiful forested climb comes up to a saddle where you'll take a quick ride over the Isaac Heath trail and will dump you out on Buck Forest Road where you'll take a left.

The next right is Thomas Cemetery, where you'll follow this gravel road all the way until it changes over to White Pine Trail. At the top of White Pine, take a left on Hooker Creek Trail and get ready for a super-fast downhill that will leave you smiling. Then another quick climb where you'll catch Ridgeline to take a left and hang on.

The fast and flowy descent will take you through some berms, a log ride, and many fun dips and corners. Watch out for horse poop on the trail though!

I think this includes some of the best singletrack in DuPont in a nice loop.
