This is a great 18 mile loop that will get you a great taste of DuPont. All the trails on this loop is fun and have a good a bit flow with a mix of fire roads.

 This ride offers some great flow, including the ever popular Ridgeline trail. However due to the number of trails in this route and the intersections of DuPont overall, it is difficult for first timers to navigate without stopping and consulting Trailforks for navigation guidance. If you can, follow someone who knows the route and it will eliminate a lot of stops to pull out your phone.
