    5 or 6 best/funnest trails in DuPont?

    Heading to DuPont in late April. It's been a few years since I rode there, so I'm asking for recommendations. I don't want a detailed route though.

    What I've done in the past is pick a handful of really fun trails to ride, then I use my map to visualize a rough route, and then wing it and adjust on the way. In the past, I recall trails like Airstrip, Ridgeline and (I think it was) Laurel something-something being a lot of fun. Stitch that together with some key waterfalls and we'll make our own DuPont Epic.

    I typically park at the lot across from the slick-rock (Corn Mill Shoals?), and start doing a huge CW loop.

    Can people recommend their funnest trails in DuPont, and I'll go from there. THanks in advance.

    Thanks, these are exactly what i'm looking for. I can stitch together a ride with this kind of input. (Lot of trails that were not on my lists of 5-10 years ago, so that is even better!)

    Keep em coming.

    - Hooker Creek -->Ridgeline (south on Ridgeline). A Dupont must-do IMHO
    - Reasonover (south to north)
    - Cedar Rock to Big Rock. Take the second Cedar Rock climb unless you want a real challenge (first left can be cleaned, but it's painful)
    - Burnt Mountain (clockwise if you want to finish with a techy descent)
    - Turkey Knob to Grassy Creek Trail (skip the Poplar Hill Loop)
    - Longside to Pine Tree to Sheep Mountain makes a good connector to High Falls Parking from Corn Mill Shoals Lot
    - Airstrip is always a fun shorter trail (ride from the airstrip down to Shelter Rock)
