Cedar Rock Trail

At A Glance

More Difficult

1.43 mi one-way

Difficulty Rating: 1.43
Steepness: Hilly
Tread Condition: Moderately Rough
Rides That Use This Trail: Eastern Slickrock


Don't miss this one! This trail offers some of the best - and only - slickrock riding in the East. Combined with Big Rock, this covers most of the slickrock in Dupont. Long sections of solid, rough granite are interspersed with patches of trees, dirt, sand, and moss. You'll find rocky, technical downhills both ways.

This is a moderate climb if ridden east-to-south; more of a killer climb if ridden south-to-east. Open areas are awfully hot in summer; bring plenty of water. Forested areas consist of thin pine trees and there are some great views. Some lower sections in the woods have been rock-armored to help prevent erosion.

This trail is part of the Eastern Slickrock Best Ride.

The trail is shaped like a half-loop; you can ride it in either direction using the Little River trail to close the loop.
