As Dupont doubletrack goes I though this was a fun connector from the road to Cascade Loop.

Trail Cascade Loop
This trail is definitely better counter-clockwise and seems most often ridden that direction. It has a great DH segment from just past the intersection w/ Longside riding North until you hit Staton Rd

Lots of leaves down, but still super fun. The big double boulder toward the end is dry and offers plenty of traction.
