Secluded beautiful waterfall - the trail was a little boring for kids, but easy.

definitely a good work out and the end result is well worth it. just beware of the overgrown area that you have to duck through for about 40ft. and there are diamond back rattle snakes so be careful. otherwise a great hike.

Scenic, heavy foot traffic, beautiful waterfalls.

We hiked this trail today and my 8 year old loved it. High Falls is very impressive, especially after all the rain they have been getting in the area. The base was closed because of it, but still the view from the trail was stunning. It’s a pretty easy hike and the trail is very well maintained. Definitely recommend the hike!

The parking lot is unimproved dirt and is medium sized so it fills quickly. (I was almost the first car in the lot when I got there and after hiking Hooker-Triple-High Falls the lot was packed and cars lined both sides of the road.) Hooker Falls Trail leads to a popular swimming area at the base of the falls and is only minutes from the parking lot. After an easy walk to view this small falls, double back, cross the bridge, and head uphill to the beautiful Triple Falls and further up to High Falls. At Triple Falls there is a long set of wooden steps that lead you to a flat rock landing between the 2nd and 3rd falls and is an excellent spot to view and photograph all three of the Triple Falls. (Don't miss this.) The viewing area has a single wire cable preventing visitors from straying too near the falls but kids could walk right under it. High Falls is a beautiful, long double cascade with a covered bridge at the top and can be easily seen from the viewing area along the trail.

Other than getting through the brush at the top it was great! Steady incline and beautiful views. It was completely empty on my Saturday mid-morning hike!

An easy 5.1 round trip hike from the main parking lot at Dupont Forest. What a gorgeous waterfall, very powerful and ever changing.

Really crowded hike and this was on a weekday. I did this and a bit more. I started at Hooker Falls, went up to see those falls and then turned up to Triple Falls and onto High Falls. From there I continued up over the covered bridge over High Falls and went up to Grassy Creek Falls - that's worth skipping as there was nothing to see. From Grassy Creek I turned back up on Buck Forest Road down to Thomas Cemetery to Sandy to Wintergreen Falls. Then back up to the Guion parking area and then back all the way on Buck Forest. A good long lollipop but this whole area is really easy to hike.

great hike! but the meadow was extremely overgrown, kinda tough to get through

Pretty very populated

Great trail and can be done with kids!

Great trail that can be done with kids - moderate due to some steep rocks but very manageable

Love this trail..it was lightly traveled the day we went..early in the week..until we got to Fawn Lake which seems to be a popular swimming hole..Lake Julia was beautiful and void of people..This is a moderate hike and has beautiful streams..One of my favs!!

The hike is super steep so wear the right shoes. Gorgeous falls and completely worth the hike.

Great waterfalls very busy area get there early and can beat the crowds

It was a blast! After about 1 mile the trail gets very rocky and steep. Toward the end there was a section without trees and just grass and shrubs. To get an amazing view make sure to follow the little trail to the left of the overlook. I would definitely do this trail again!

Quick walk if you just want to see the falls.

Easy walk go a neat waterfall!

Great views throughout the hike. Pretty easy for the most part. There are some awesome photo opportunities with the falls in the background as well!

one of my favorite easy trails .has interesting points of interest and the falls are small but refreshing..Lots of interesting flora..Not too heavily used the many times I have walked/run it..nice for easy biking, too

This use to be one of my favorite waterfalls but they had it roped off at the bottom of the stairs so you couldn’t walk out and chill on the rocks anymore.

Nice views of beautiful falls. More of a walk than a hike. Kind of touristy.

Yes, as others have noted this is not exactly what I would call hiking. Path walking is more like it. All of the falls were beautiful, we walked from hooker falls parking area to triple falls to high falls to bridal falls and lastly to hooker falls before calling it a day, took us about 3.5 hours or so. We brought a picnic which we enjoyed at high falls. Great day of multiple waterfalls, just not much of a hike.

A lot of fun

Pretty hike with very big waterfall. Lots of dogs & kids having fun too.

Super easy and fairly short trail to the falls! There’s a few rocks that are perfect for a lunch while listening to the falls. As others have said - not the most grand waterfalls in the park, but it is much more private. We were there on a Saturday and only had 1 other group of people at the Falls with us. There’s also some spots for swimming, not just at the falls but also along the trail in the river depending on how you get back to the parking lot!

There was a lot of straight uphill, and half of the trail was a lot wider than I like, but the falls were spectacular!

More of a path than a true trail. Very wide path, gravel most of the way. Varying levels of intensity but mostly pretty easy. Lists of opportunities to get in the water. Great views, took my wife and I almost three hours but we hiked it all ..... covered bridge, triple falls and all. Would do it again.

Easy trail for that is good for bringing young children. awesome falls.
