The easiest route to introduce a beginner or young rider to mountain biking in DuPont is this simple pedal out and up a few logging roads directly to the trailhead.

Children may want to push some near the end of the first fire road, but will be able to ride most of the route. Very few rocks or roots at all and Ridgeline can be ridden on the cheapest or most expensive bike available.

An absolute blast for any skill level.
