Description

This old road is reverting back to a singletrack trail. The new extension from Pinnacle Mountain Road down to Briery Fork trail (built early 2013) is purpose-built singletrack, and it opens up more possibilities for loops in the south end of DuPont, including large loops all the way around Lake Julia. The new section is machine-cut tread with a couple of technical features along the way, including some rock outcrops. Travels through vast areas of galax groundcover, through a couple of switchbacks, across one neat bridge and a creek crossing, and ends in a forest of white pines. This fast, flowing trail is well graded with plenty of rolling dips for drainage.
