A tour of two of Dupont State Forest's stunning waterfalls...and also some intriguing mystery. Hiking: Right on Buck Forest Road, left on Covered Bridge Trail, right on High Falls Trail, right on Triple Falls Trail, right on Buck Forest Road back to parking

Falls were nice, but I would hardly describe these as trails. More like a path. Lots of people.

Very easy hike, would not describe as moderate. The Falls are Great. A lot of people got in the water at the High Falls to get a better view and cool down! Highly trafficked trail! Great trail for animals!

High water flow from the rains makes it even better than usual!

Very accessible hike with incredible falls along the way. The elevation gain is all in a very short party of the trail, side from that it was easy going. We hiked all the way to Hooker Falls which was a little disappointing after seeing High Falls and Triple Falls it did look like a nice place to swim when a bit warmer though.

The river bend trail is not a flat trail good for walking. It looks like they are planning a trail there but it’s not ready yet.

The rest of the trails are great. Mostly packed dirt. Was nice to get down to the base of the falls and crawl on the rocks. Nice place to sit and have a snack. Lots of people had their dogs.

Got caught in a hale storm. Just shows you have to go prepared. All in all, great day!

Loved hiking this trail! Extremely well marked and a highly trafficked area. We got there around 7:45am and we were the only people there. By time we left around 11, the parking lot was full of cars. Really enjoyed all the different waterfalls!

We went today and absolutely loved it. So peaceful and lots of off trail places to stop and relax by the water. It was gorgeous!

Very beautiful and easy hike. The waterfalls are very beautiful, make sure you stop for a little while at each of them just to enjoy them. It was very quiet when I was there, but I assume it will be very busy in summer. Lots of places to swim as well. Definitely coming back in summer!

Absolutely beautiful! Trails are wide and very nicely maintained. Moderate is an appropriate rating for this trail due to elevation changes and steps. This was moderately busy on Saturday afternoon in January. Nice little visitor center with helpful park ranger. Nice clean bathrooms.

Beautiful falls, we hiked to High Falls when the temperature was at 20 degrees. There was a lot of ice on the falls and it was snowing. Nice hike,

Nice easy hike, that’s dog friendly. But you won’t be doing this hike alone, lots of traffic. The waterfalls make it worth wild. Triple falls is nice but you have to go to high falls to get your moneys worth. It’s categorized as medium difficulty but most people would call it easy. The trail appears to be an old service road of sorts. There is one section that has a bit of an incline but otherwise its not much of a challenge, not even for a novice like myself.

Highly trafficked, touristy, easy for kids! Amazing views. If you are looking to actually hike this is not the trail... very accessible for anyone.

I love this place. It’s beautiful. Of course if you go during days when everyone is off it’s going to be busy.

Great easy trail. Brought my dog with me and it was even easy enough for him to make it up to the waterfall!!

One of our favorite hikes - and one we do often! Go MIDWEEK to avoid crowds. Beautiful walk/hike up to triple falls and then the covered bridge ... or add a few extra miles and continue on to Bridal Veil Falls! So many waterfalls in one hike! Truly magical! Be careful of copperheads - and don't 'bush-wack' cuz there is way too much poison ivy! If you like to fly-fish, bring your gear!

Loved this hike! Easy enough to complete for but slightly challenging in a few areas. Beautiful falls and views from both top and bottom. A great way to spend a couple of hours.

Pretty easy hike for what you get to see.

There's a reason this is so popular. Get going before 9:30 to avoid too many people.

Not rigorous. Great areas on the Falls for swimming or just hanging.
