Need To Know

Park at the Corn Mill Shoals parking area in Dupont.

Description

Start on Corn Mill Shoals (a doubletrack trail) and follow the sandy path through ups and downs until you get to the second entrance to the Burnt Mountain trail. Burnt starts out as a moderate flowy trail with gentle ups and fairly fast downs, accompanied by a couple of nice rollers and a double.

After a nice little meandering climb through the forest, there's a short, rocky and brutally technical descent that has a couple of advanced sections and drops that may be walked by all but skilled riders.

After arriving back at Corn Mill Shoals, take a right and follow the path to a fork where you'll split left at the Little River Trail, another doubletrack road. Follow the Little River Trail and skip the first entrance to Cedar Rock Trail on the left and across creeks, rocks and up a steep and washed out section that's the second entrance to the Cedar Rock trail. At the power line clearing, take a left up the 'East Coast Slick Rock' and follow the cairns up the sometimes steep and beautiful climb to the Big Rock trail sign.

After enjoying the view at the top, follow Big Rock up a rooty ascent and then begin the downhill on the pitted and precarious slick rock. Watch out for a couple of rock drops that sneak up on you as you make your way to the more advanced and technical rocky downhill that brings you back to Corn Mill Shoals.
