“Cart offers a steeper and more direct way to the top of Mine Mountain than using Laurel Ridge.”

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.
Cart starts off of Laurel Ridge
shortly after the intersection with Shoals
Trail. The trail climbs very steeply for 0.25 miles then descends slightly until the trail ends at the intersection with Mine Mountain
