Carolina Tour Option - DuPont State Forest

DuPont Trail System – Mountain biking
DuPont is an extremely scenic location with multiple personalities. On one side of the river is steep, rocky terrain. There are fast and technical mountain climbs and descents with large areas of exposed slick-rock as you make your way up Cedar Mountain. Black Mountain is also located on the Southwest side of the river and has flowy berms and jumps as you make your way to the top of its steep technical descent which takes you back down to the main trail.
Take your shoes off (and hang on to them tightly!) as we fjord the stream and make our way over to the vast Northeast section of trails. Smooth and flowy IMBA style ridge riding with long climbs and descents will keep you smiling. All advanced difficulty trails here are optional and can be avoided for less experienced riders.
Even the drive over is amazing as you pass over famous Ceasar’s Head.
Ideal lesson topics covered while at DuPont:
-Braking while descending
-Technical singletrack climbing
-Selecting a line
