Between the ice and snow and rain, the single-track trails in DuPont Forest are a muddy mess. Please help us protect our trails and stick to Forest roads and two-track trails.

From the N.C. Forest Service

“In response to extremely wet conditions, DuPont State Recreational Forest (DSRF) has closed all single-track trails effective until noon, Tuesday, Feb. 15, 2022. Forest roads and two-track trails will remain open. Visitors are asked to stay off the single-track trails because wet trails are susceptible to rutting, erosion, and other damage from foot, bicycle and equestrian traffic. Several drying days will be necessary before single-track trails can reopen. DSRF staff appreciates visitors adjusting plans and remembering that we each play a role in keeping the trail system sustainable for future use.”

Updates to this advisory will be available on the DSRF website.
