This Crown Jewel of Dupont Mountain Biking starts and ends at the Corn Mill Shoals Parking area. Directly across the paved road (Cascade Lake Road) you will find the trail's entrance.
Get on Corn Mill Shoals Rd and take your second right onto Burnt Mountain and do this great loop in a clockwise fashion so you can enjoy some of the best downhill sections in the Dupont State Forest.
Once you get to the bottom you will be taking a right on Little River Trail which follows The Little River funny enough! Go past the Cedar Rock trailhead on your left and climb up the easier way (hahahaha) to where Big Rock and Cedar Rock intersect. Be sure you have your camera ready, the views all along the slick rock are amazing up and down.
After a little snack follow Big Rock Down being very careful of ledgy drops and hikers (this section is heavily travelled on the weekends.)
Once you have completed the descent you will be back on Corn Mill Shoals Rd again. Take a Right and then another onto Longside Trail following the left to Twixt Trail. From here you will cross the main road and get on a dirt climb called Rock Quarry Road. Take this to the tippy top and go left on a double track called Buck Ridge Road. At the very top of that you will begin your sweet sweet descent back to the parking lot down Micajah Trail and straight on down to Wilkie Trail, ending at the road. A quick head turn to the left will reveal the parking area.
