    What's new in DuPont?

    So, what's new or newly redone in DuPont in the last 2 years or so? Recommendations for flowy or techy but definitely not flat?

    Rocky Ridge, Hickory Mountain, Ridgeline.

    Thx! Awesome, the new(ish) DuPont map has a loop from Guion Farm that hits them all.

    Instead of riding the first, straight, section of Rocky Ridge, ride on down to Frank Street and take that trail to Switchback, then left on Stone Mountain. It will dump you out right where RR begins the tight switchbacks. Much better than RR from Sky Valley.

    Thx for the tip, it was right on. After all that forest road coming from Lake Imaging, that bit of tighter forest was welcome - I'll take steeper singletrack to gradual forest road climb any day.

    I'll have to try that next time. We took Sky Valley and it was a bit dull.

    I hit Rocky Ridge for the first time a few days ago, wow that was tight! I understand now why it's rated higher difficulty on Trailforks than Ridgeline, really narrow and tight, but really fun ride.

    Not sure if I misunderstand, but you still need to take Sky Valley. You actually ride down a bit farther and enter on Frank Street. No other way around unless you shuttle and come in on Sky Valley from the east.

    Nope, I misunderstood. I thought you could bypass part of Sky Valley, but misread it. I'll try it out anyway, though
