Ridgline is one of the fastest, flowiest downhill rides in the area. This is a nice, quick 6-mile loop that finishes with a great downhill.


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 Road, 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!

To continue, for those bikers who come from out of town to ride the wonderfully beautiful trails in DuPont, PLEASE remember that you will encounter horses, hikers, some with small children and dogs on leashes and elder citizens. For those of you who think, as one person put it, "it's balls to the wall", it can be if you can see far enough ahead to avoid unpleasant encounters with these groups. Aug 6, 2017
During the recent trail maintenance that the forest service is doing they removed the ridable log, my favorite part of this trail and the only TTF. Dec 4, 2017
There has been a lot of ruckus about the recent trail maintenance on Ridgeline. After riding Ridgeline yesterday, my opinion is they did a good job. Yes, the skinny is gone, but I never rode it anyway. Visibility is improved; if anything, the trail is now faster. I want to reinforce Ms. Davis’ comment that this is a multiuse trail, as are all the Dupont trails, so bikers are advised to ride in control and with courtesy. Mar 11, 2018
