Local Info

Just a friendly reminder that all of Dupont is multi use and bi directional. You'll encounter hikers and bikers of all ages and skills going both directions at any time on any trail. This is not a unidirectional flow course. While I encourage everyone to get to enjoy Dupont, if it is your first time riding these trails, do not be surprised when you need to halt your climb to accommodate a downhill ride and likewise, downhill riders need to check speed and vocalize to alert trail users below. Don't ask a question of a local rider then laugh in their face when you dont get the answer you were expecting. Enjoy your ride and be respectful and responsible!

Food & Drink

Kay-K's Inc. at 3945 Staton Rd serves ice cream and craft beer and is close to the Lake Imaging parking lot.
