Here are some legitimate, helpful links for hikers, bikers, equestrians, and general visitors to these areas.

Friends of DuPont State Forest: This is a lively site with tons of great information about the Forest in general.
Friends of Gorges State Park: A promising new site for Gorges. They have a lot of general information about Gorges this site does not have; i.e. about things other than hiking trails.
