Easy day hike with cool views and nice waterfall. The airstrip offers some nice views if you hike out to the end. The trails are forest roads so doesn't offer much fun or challenge in terms of 'hiking'. You can also add in the Reasonover Creek Trail to make a longer loop.

Nice hike. More private than other waterfalls in dupont. Good swimming spot as well.

One of the first amazing spots I went the first time I visited North Carolina. Now I live within hiking distance of all the falls in Dupont State Forest. Awesome trails for all ages and amazing waterfalls. The only downside is it does get very busy during the summer.

Wife and I hiked this one last Sunday and we will return. The sign at the trailhead says the trail is strenuous, but it is moderate at most so don't be deterred. I'm 69 and not in the greatest shape and I made it just fine. Lots of flow due to the recent rain and temps in the 60's so it was a great day to be on this trail.

Loved this hike, with beautiful waterfalls. There is a lot of climbing down tree roots and rocks so I would not recommend bringing small children, or doing this hike if you have any physical disability. But it is well worth the climb and there are great spots to have a picnic next to the falls!

Even though it was super cold it was still an awesome hike!!! Snowing at the falls and it was gorgous!!! Closer to the falls the ground and rock crossings were icy. But it was still a great hike!!!

Tall waterfall in a small park. Trail follows the stream.

Easy trail nice falls.

We did Triple Falls, High Falls and Hooker Falls in that order. 3.5 miles.

Pretty busy trail. Easy and well marked.

great trail, awesome views

Was very steep! The beginning along the water in the woods was beautiful. Waterfall not impressive. Much more abundant falls in North Carolina.

Great easy walk into the falls. Kids and I had a great time and the waterfall was awesome!

Nice trail, beautiful scenery!

Amazing!!! The drive there is beautiful, but the parking area is small. The hike is so short tho people are coming and leaving quickly. Short and amazing! A little crowded due to people swimming.

Easy and pretty

Great trail for about 7-70 years of age - if in good shape. a few steep hills. but always wide trails.

Probably the prettiest waterfall I have seen in northern Georgia or western North Carolina.

It was an absolute beautiful hike. My 3 year old daughter and I did it in about 3 hours but we spent a lot of time at the fall itself. Especially after she found a giant frog. It does get a little tough right at the end ( Elora names them the silly stairs.) but, you’re so close to falls it’s well worth the challenge. I only needed up carrying her about 100 feet of the trail. She’s a trooper!

we didn't make it to the falls, but it was still overall a good hike

Beautiful falls. The trail is well maintained and we really enjoyed that the rangers try to keep the trail as natural as possible while allowing foot traffic. Crossing the streams made the hike more interesting. Please take the time to look around the trail, you will see a number of tiny falls in the creek and a humongous tree. The streams are not deep at the crossings and there are steppingstones. The fall itself is breathtaking, pictures do not show the magnitude or majesty of this beauty!

Great trail for beginners! just get there early as this trail gets crowded.

Good short hike. Did this with a 3 and 6 year old with no issues. There is parallel parking on both sides of the road right at the trailhead. Ends at a waterfall that has an observation deck. Also some side paths that you can use to get underneath the waterfall. Trail was not too muddy, but I’m also not sure the last time it rained.

Incredible waterfall. We took our 3 and 5 year old girls with us. We did this trail after doing the Outdoor Adventure trail for kids near the entrance to the park. Nothing technical. Climbed the stairs up to a Chimney Rock and Exclamation Point after this hike. This waterfall is definitely worth seeing.

Super easy and quick. Beautiful falls!

Great trail! Slight inclines, but nothing too difficult. This was my puppy’s first hike with hopefully more to come.

Great trail, and fairly easy with just a few steep parts. There are a lot of stairs but you can still see the waterfalls without going down the stairs, it’s just not quite as nice of a view.

When we were there we got to see kayakers take part of the triple falls, it was so cool!

Only reason it lost a star is the trail is not very well marked. Forks (and even 3 direction splits) weren’t always marked, the signs that were there often didn’t include distances, and there were very few signs along the trails. It is a short trail but it’s always safer when it’s well marked!

Beautiful trail, some wonderful trail work has been done, thank you to whomever! There has been a lot of rain the last week in the falls were absolutely beautiful!
