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.

Triple Falls is a great place for a family outing and can get quite crowded, but there are multiple entry points to the various falls. The middle part of Triple Falls is accessed via a steep set of stairs from the trail. Once down you have plenty of space to spread out either near the base of the middle falls or near the top of the lower falls down trail. While there were many families and big groups along the way, even on a Tuesday, we found areas of space. We passed by a copperhead habitat but didn't see any as it was midday - if you want to encounter one, go by at dusk or dawn, but be careful! Highly recommend the falls at DuPont State Forest if you are in the Hendersonville area.
