Hooker Creek Trail

Summary: A great connection on the way to Ridgeline, Hooker Creek starts with a wide open fast, flowy descent that ends in a narrower segment at the bottom that weaves through trees and slows down slightly. The trail ends in a climb back out to the base of the final climb to Ridgeline.

Difficulty: DuPont Intermediate - I think most riders that ride Ridgeline can handle this route, however there are times when the trail is looser than others and the trail does have some steeper sections. The loose sections, which tend to wash out after a lot of rain, can be a bit hazardous if you pick up too much speed, which is why I categorized it as intermediate. If you have good brake control and maintain proper speed, the difficulty of this trail should be marginally higher than Ridgeline or other beginner trails in DuPont.

Length/Elevation Change: Slightly over 1 mile, half descending and half climbing, the trail descents and climbs approx. 180ft.

Notable features: No major features, but the speed that can be carried at the start is worth noting, as it's possible to get very fast on the trail and run into an awkward section with piles of loose rocks, depending on the weather. Near the bottom, the high speed segment ends in a narrower, twistier ride through the trees that can come up fairly quick. Keeping your speed in check is the most important aspect of this trail.
