DuPont State Forest, Penrose


Directions:  Take Hwy 280 from Asheville Airport to Brevard, Make a right on Hwy 64 South, go 4.1 miles to Crab Creek Rd, turn right, proceed another 3 miles to DuPont Rd, turn right, then it is .6 miles to Sky Valley Rd, turn left, 1.2 miles to gravel Parking Lot. Trails are very well marked.

Trail Information:  All of the trails are very well marked. There is a box with maps available at the parking lot. Take only one please. If for some reason the box is empty, there is one posted in the trail information bulletin board in the parking lot. There are 62 trails, ranging in distance from a half mile, to 17 miles. Lots of combo loops to make for longer running. 3:32 run out there without toucing the same trail twice. I probably went 30 miles with ease.
No roots, very little rocks, very smooth paths of grass and dirt. Great Place to train.

Miscellaneous Information:  This is a new State Forest that was donated by the DuPont corporation last year. It is on ground that used to be maintained as a recreation area for factory employees. Lots of little fishing ponds, creeks, and picnic tables. If you need additional information, email me at the link below. trlrnr@hotmail.com
