Trail shared by Timothy Parrish

A fast and flowy loop around Hickory Mountain. Rides great both ways.

Features -none-

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.

Great little trail, beginners can dodge the obstacles easily, the more advanced riders can launch off them. Mar 11, 2018
