DuPont State Recreational Forest is a very popular multiuse, bi-directional trail system, so be on the lookout for hikers, horses, and other cyclists. It is normally open in any weather although it can close in extended periods of freeze/thaw during the winter.

Description

Turkey Knob starts off of Turkey Knob Road near the intersection of Pinnacle Mountain Road. It is a mile long 300 foot descent that weaves through the trees and has many high speed bermed turns. This is one of the best downhill runs DuPont has to offer. The trail connects to Turkey Knob Road in the south and Briery Fork in the north.
