The loop I did was, Corn Mill Shoals Trail Burnt Mountain Trail then back onto the Corn Mill Shoals Trail Up the Bridal Overlook, then back down the Bridal Overlook, then Bridal Veil Falls, onto Conservation Road, turn left onto Joanna Road, then onto Grassy Creek, turn onto Sandy Trail, then a diversion on the Wintergreen Trail to the waterfall, return back and take the Tarklin Branch, then onto Thomas Cemetry, then onto White Pine, Hooker Creek, Ridgeline Trail, Lake Imaging Rd, and final destination is the Buck Forest Parking. This loop took me just over 3 hours to ride, started at 8.30am, just after a heavy rainfall, which is probably the reason that the trails were empty. The loop I did was pretty diverse All in all a very decent ride, some sections of this trail are fantastic, but others are merely means of connecting you to other parts, and they can be a bit boring and slow. For a much better faster but shorter loop, I would suggest Corn Shoals Burnt Mountain ( anti clockwise) Little River Cedar Rock and down Big Rock.

Dupont was made for MTB and it is one heck of a place to ride.
