“A twisty winding descent from Sky Valley Road to Rifle.”
— Pete Kemppainen
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.
There are a few rollers at the beginning, but then the trail tightens up and the turns get quicker. The descent it twisty and winding and gets progressively steeper going from south to north to connect from Sky Valley Road
