This trail is a real workout, it ascends with grades from 10 - 15% constantly. But the views from the top are well worth it, to say nothing of the good cardio workout you will get. On the way down do not miss the right turn!

A lot more brush at the top than we expected so we didn't make it to the top. I would suggest leggings/long sleeves for this portion of the trail! The hike up was nice and cool.

Also we did not see a sign for the Rocky Ridge trail to enter in - it was just a clearing to a trail at the intersection of Sky Valley and Old CCC (if you are on the gravel part, you have gone too far up Sky Valley road, if you get into residential areas on Old CCC road, you've gone too far).

I would also suggest going to Guion Access for a general map of Dupont Forest!

Super short hike (about 1.3 miles each way) but very beautiful lookout at the top. Strenuous on the way up but doesn't last very long. The road up to the parking lot has lots of gravel so be careful!

Was going to start at the old CCC road trailhead, but there was a yellow barricade. So I started from the rocky ridge trailhead further up the road. Makes it a much shorter and easier hike. The field toward the end is really overgrown with tons of bees so be careful. Had to bushwack to get through. Views at the top are worth the struggle.
