Up And Over Rich Mountain


Approximately 30 miles
2.5+ hours

About 50 percent gravel of a 30-mile ride, this ride has two big climbs, one being past Cascade Lake, where the Little River collects after spilling over High Falls and Triple Falls in DuPont State Forest. The climb up Rich Mountain reveals a gravel section at the top, with magnificent views to the west through horse pastures and apple orchards.
