Bridal Veil Falls has to be on your “don’t miss it” list for Dupont. Getting there this way requires a wet river crossing, but until the right-of-way dispute with AGFA is settled, it’s the best way. This map also shows other trails to use, if and when there is a right-of-way across AGFA property. The ride surface is 5 miles of double track. Highlights include sandy road, slippery & wet river crossing, spectcular falls, and bare rock riding.

Scenic moderate trail. The first mile is on a dirt road, primarily downhill until you cross the river. Beware, the river crossing is very slippery and should not be ridden. Another rider broke his fingers after falling there a few weeks ago. The river crossing is a beautiful location and very scenic. The pools of water are deep enough to have a dip to cool off if you need it. After the river crossing, you will climb several hundred vertical feet and the trail becomes single lane. There are some challenging places on this .5 mile leg. The final 1 mile to Bridal Veil falls is almost all downhill. Once you begin the downhill ride you will come to a large area of exposed granite. This is your reminder to slow down because the next section is realatively steep but contains large loose rock (easy to catch you wheels on). Once by this section you can cruise fairly easily on to the falls. The falls are very scenic and there are lots of large flat rocks at the bottom of the falls to eat your lunch at. Please be careful as we saw four snakes at the bottom of the falls amongst the rocks there. One appeared to have the right coloring for a rattler (although is was young). Remember that the first mile of the ride back is mostly fairly steep uphill. All in all a beautiful bike trail.

It was worth the trip from Texas Very nice, and the trails are marked in a way that it's hard to get lost in this forest provided you have a trail map. There are challanging trails, and easy trails. I really enjoyed this area. GREAT TRAILS !!!!!!
