In DuPont State Forest. Start at Corn Mill Shoals Parking area. Took Corn Mill Shoals trail to Big Rock Trail to Little River Trail to Burnt Mountain Trail and back to Corn Mill Shoals to complete approximately a 6 mile loop. This can be shortened to a 4.5 mile loop by omitting Burnt Mountain.

Typical trail in the woods. Lots of mountain bikers. I won't be hiking this trail again

Very enjoyable trail and the stream crossing is a nice feature. Tip: due to slickness of mossy rocks wear only socks when crossing. Bare feet appear to be too slick and while boots are fine those wearing socks did much better. Water was between ankle and calf deep.

Easy walk in the Dupont State Forest.

This trail is in the DuPont State Forest with parking lot on opposite side of the road from trail. The morning of my hike was cold and snowy. The trail starts out easy, with the first mile or so being dirt and gravel. It then becomes much more difficult because you have to cross Little River, which at the crossing is more like a creek. After the river crossing the trail gets steep in places and very treacherous due to the ice and snow. Overall a very good trail and one an average hiker can do in dry weather.
