“A short connector trail that is insanely steep and unkempt near the end at the intersection of Sky Valley Road.
— Vinnie Connors
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
Guion starts off of Hickory Mountain Road
, connects to Rifle
after a short distance, to Boundary Trail
after another 0.1 mi, and continues onto Sky Valley Road
. The trail continues steeply downhill to Sky Valley Road
from the intersection with Boundary Trail
over a path that looks as if it hasn't been groomed in years. If you are into a challenge, it is possible to ride the steep downhill section, but I would advise against climbing this part since it is a very difficult hike-a-bike.
