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.

The very beginning of this trail is steep. I would rate it as moderate until the actual loop starts. Then the inclines are more gradual and much less strenuous. The entire trail is wide and a mix of small stones and sand areas. The views are outstanding. The only complaint is the clutter that the forestry service has put out. there are several areas with caution tape on the edge of the trail, about 500 do not enter signs spread out and some ugly yellow barricades near the triple falls area. It takes away from the natural beauty of the area. Ironically there is a small washed out area of the trail that has a natural wood fence around it that blends in much better. I wish the caution taped areas took the same approach. High Falls is absolutely a must see. There is a nice overlook that shows just about the entire falls and a bit of the covered bridge above the falls.
