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

Logan Watts

Overview

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.

Description

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!

Awesome and fun loop. Oct 16, 2015


Ridgeline is basically the definition of flow. A great loop to maximize the downhill to finish the ride is to climb up Jim Branch and turn left onto the Buck Mountain Forest Road. Follow the road and take the second right (Just at the start of Ridgeline) onto the Hickory Mountain Loop. From the highest point of the loop get ready for miles of downhill all the way to the parking lot! Jan 2, 2017


The two downhills on Ridgeline are fantastic, some of the fastest I've ridden. I ran out of gear on my 2x10, just couldn't pedal any faster. The final downhill is worth all the climbing, it is amazingly smooth and fast. Mar 27, 2017
