“A tough climb followed by a smooth descent in both directions.”
— Vinnie Connors
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.
Mine Mountain starts and ends off of Fawn Lake Road
in the north and south. It is a decent climb followed by a great descent in both directions. It connects to Fawn Lake Road
, Laurel Ridge
, Cart, and Scarlet Oak. This is one of the best trails of the DuPont system.
