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 during extended periods of freeze/thaw in the winter.

Need to Know

The last part of the trail at the top of Stone Mountain is a mandatory hike-a-bike. The grade reaches 25-30% for the last 0.1 mile.

Description

Stone Mountain Trail starts off of Rocky Ridge Trail then intersects with Switchback before starting the 600+ foot grueling climb to the top. The average grade of the climb is about 15% and it is upward of 30% at the hike-a-bike section at the top. The top offers 360-degree views of the forest in the winter and 180-degree views the rest of the year.
