Classic Dupont Ride including the famed Ridgeline Descent!! Do not miss this loop as it includes a small out and back hikes down to Grassy Creek Falls.
This route starts out of the Lake Imaging Parking lot, climbs up Lake Imaging road instead of single track Jim Branch Trail, then hits Hilltop which will bring a massive smile to your face with it's sweeping turns and twisty downhills, then the side trip to the falls for a quick snack and photo sesh!
Climbing up Buck Forest Rd and making your Left turn to White Pine and another right to descend down and climb back up Hooker Creek Trail with some of the most beautiful single track in the State Forest.
Once out at the intersection with Ridgeline you will have a short double track section until it deadends into the long, swoopy grin-inducing descent of the famed Ridgeline Trail. Berms and buff downhill all the way down to the end. High fives all around, then head back out to the right will take you back to the Lake Imaging Parking Lot where you started.
