DuPont State Recreational Forest is a very popular multi-use, 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.

Need to Know

Trail has re-opened from closure in early 2014.

Description

After bombing down the fantastic Ridgeline trail, take a left and head North along the trail with the old firing range to your right. Once back into the forest cover, you'll roller-coaster around the top of Hickory Mountain. Flowing and slightly technical, this trail is fast and fun.

The perfect addition to your Ridgeline lap, Hickory Mountain is a generally fast and flowing spur trail that has just the right amount of tech! 1.4mi — 0h 08m
