DuPont State Forest

DuPont is about an hour’s drive from Cashiers but well worth the trip. This area has a vast assortment of trails, almost all of which are open to mountain biking.

From Cashiers, travel east on Hwy. 64 to Brevard and take a right on Hwy. 276 in downtown Brevard. Continue until you see signs for DuPont and follow them in.

There are four main access points to the forest.

A great ride for intermediate riders and above is the Slickrock Loop. The ride offers a mountaintop experience on exposed granite.
