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.

slight whiff of horse flatulence from time to time, but otherwise a scenic stroll down a narrow rock service vehicle road.

Easy hiking for all ages. Heavily trafficked. Lots of places to stop for a break and set up picnic. I even saw a couple relaxing on their hammock. Absolutely majestic once you reach the 3rd highest waterfall. Lots of people going in for a dip.

Overall a very nice hike. My only complaint was the large number of people on the trail which made it difficult to photograph the water falls.

This one is great for the kids as well. We had 5 under 7 yo with minimal whining and they loved the falls. Good times!!
