    My second mountain biking run. Dupont State Forest

    Applied the tips from my previous thread that you all gave me and had a heck of a time, so thanks! Dupont has plenty of awesome trails that I hope to go down again soon.

    Very nice. In some places it was hard to tell if you were on hard-packed dirt or granite outcropping.

    for the most part it was hard packed dirt. Good bit of rock on climbs though.

    Nice, man! PAS is doing an event there in August that'll take you through the entire park, check out Pisgah Area SORBA » Blog Archive » Save The Trails Challenge August 23rd, 2014 ? MTB or Ultra Run. It'd be a good way to get to know some of the locals.

    You may also want to check out their meetup group (Pisgah Area Mountain Biking Meetup (Mills River, NC) - Meetup) where they post a lot of beginner/intermediate rides. From the vid, you'd be fine on a Wednesday intermediate.

    One wee note: try to keep your friends from riding through the moss/vegetation on the DuPont slickrock. It's very delicate.

    I didn't ride down Ridgeline, but apparently that's the trail to hit! You should look into it when you go. There's videos all over youtube of it.
