Corn Mill Shoals Running Trail: The Corn Mill Shoals Trail consists of some fast and fun singletrack that crosses the Little River and ends at one of Dupont’s most famous waterfalls, Bridal Veil Falls. The Corn Mills Shoals Trail is a little over 2.5 miles to the waterfall. After viewing the falls, you could hit the Bridal Overlook Trail (0.5 miles) that connects back up with the Corn Mills Shoals Trail. Lots of options so be sure and grab a trail map before heading out (we recommend grabbing the Avenza App on your phone and downloading the $4.99 DuPont map to support Friends of DuPont State Forest.
