Trail shared by Vinnie Connors

An easy trail with a nice downhill and an optional segment that overlooks Grassy Creek Falls.

Features -none-

DuPont State Recreational Forest is a very popular multiuse, bi-directional trail system, so be on the lookout for hikers, horses, and bikers. It is normally open in any weather although it can close in extended periods of freeze / thaw during the winter.

Description

Hilltop starts at the end of Locust at the intersection with Lake Imaging Road. The trail starts with an easy climb to a speedy 3/4 mile downhill section that leads back to Lake Imaging Road. There is also a optional short segment near the end of the trail that will take you to a nice view of Grassy Creek Falls.
