    Love Dupont. I did the IMBA epic route there once and it was one of my all time favorite rides. Did you hit Reasonover as well? There are so many great loops you can tie together up there. Cool video.

    This makes me miss living near ATL. Dupont is in NC. If you're gonna make a trip, then it'll pay off to also check out Pisgah Ntl Forest. The rides are nearly endless in this area...

    I know that trail!

    It's one of my favorites in Dupont. You were killing it. If I may pimp you for a bit: were you using a go pro and a chest mount? If so, how do you have your go pro angled. You have a pretty good shot for 70% of the film,and the last 30% is pretty d@nm good, too. Oh, and what pixel rate are you running? Dirty South indeed.

    Yeah, go pro and a chest mount. I had it angled as far up as it would go on that mount. I've got the regular go pro and not the hd, so there is no option as far as pixel rate goes. I used windows move maker for this quick edit... not super classy, haha! Compressed to 3mbps, but then uploaded to youtube so it was compressed further.

    And yeah, Dirty South represent!

    Thanks G

    I just got a gp and bought the chest mount as well; I am waiting on an sd card, so I can start fooling around with the set-up. I read in a post that a guy was mounting his upside down on the mount to get a straighter shot of the trail. However, your video's angle was just about perfect with it attached normally. Again, sweet vid.

    Hmm that's actually a cool idea. I could see how an upside down mount might provide a little better angle.

    Haha what? This is the straight footage.... and this is not nearly all of the slickrock, the majority of it was on the 20 minute climb up to the top.

    No I didn't hit reasonover, but I did a big loop by Imaging (coming down Ridgeline), and then rode some of the stuff east of Corn Mill Shoals as well

    The dh is always shorter than we want! I've done that climb many times and it does have a western slickrock feeling.

    I miss trails like that. Going to be in the area again this summer. Must remember to hit Dupont and Pisgah again.

    Full Trail Review W/Pictures

    Hey guys,

    I know some people were asking for more information. My full review of the trail (complete with photos) is finally live here: https://www.gregridestrails.com/2011...il-review.html

    It's not a review of the entire Dupont State Forest network, but rather a single 8 mile route within the network that includes a ton of slickrock.

    Lots more than that one trail at Dupont for sure. Loved the descent off of the Airfeild.
