Beatiful waterfalls, wooded trail. At the parking lot, cross the bridge and follow the clearly marked trail upstream and along the rivers edge. At about a third of one mile is the very scenic Triple Falls There is a trail that takes you to the middle of the 3 step falls. Extreme caution should be used in this area as well as any other trail near waterfalls in DuPont State Forest. At about the 1 mile mark the trail either continues to follow the river or veers right up the hill. For this hike stay left and continue to follow the river. This trail will bring you to the base of High Falls. Rock-hop across the base of the falls and proceed up the trail to the over-look for nice views. Proceed west and then turn left on the gravel road which crosses the top of the falls under a covered bridge. After a short distance turn left and follow the trail north along a nicely wooded trail until it ends at a large parking area for horse trailers. Cross the highway and take the Holly Trail to Hooker Falls: L to parking.

Impressive falls, easy walk, dog friendly. Bring a lunch and grab a bite at the base of one of these 3 beauties. It's worth dealing with the crowds.

Falls were beautiful, good hike just too many humans. difficult to take a picture without some random stranger in it.

Popular trail. Seems very influenced by humans (wide graven road, blocked paths, yellow tape, ext). The main road hike gets pretty steep. Some nice views.

I found a path towards the beginning river before the falls that allows you to walk on the rocks to the bottom of the falls.

The falls were beautiful, ample swimming. Very crowded! Took 3 kids and a dog and it was a bit much having to climb up to the top. Kid carrier definitely recommended with all of the traffic. Would go again.

I love to hike the loop between Triple Falls and High Falls. Always beautiful, and very doable 50minute hike. I like to go up to the covered bridge, easy and pleasant hike. DuPont Forest is always well maintained, and parking is free. There are picnic tables located at both falls. Since word got out that Hunger Games was filmed at Bridle Veil Falls in DuPont, I hear it is much busier. Parking easy if you start before 11:00.

Outstanding. We hiked three connected trails. Started at the visitors center and hiked Three Falls, High Falls and Hooker Falls. About 6M. All Falls were fantastic. We lie in the area now and will return prepared to enjoy the water. Visitors center will recommend best for your level. Paths were lovely and wide. Elevation changes significant but not like rock climbing. Really lovely.
