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.

Monday, 06/01/2020 Parking lot was nearly full, luckily scored a spot! Busy park, but worth it. The waterfalls were breathtaking and washed away all thoughts of stress. Highly recommend going down the stairs and trail to the base of both falls.

Lovely and fairly quiet in October. The air smelled so fresh.

Great trail. Not too tough, just the right length and 3 waterfalls! It can get busy though! Would recommend for anyone looking for a easy to moderate hike, good for kids as well.

Hooker Falls trail closed at the time we visited. Triple Falls and Highfalls work gorgeous and a beautiful lightly trafficked trail.

First timer with my 7 year old and it was a blast. The bathrooms were closed due to the COVID-19 concern but that wasn’t an issue since it was a nice short walk.

Great family trail

This is a beautiful, enjoyable outing: perfect for hiking/picnicking and just allowing mother nature to envelope you with its grandeur. Clean restrooms, dog friendly trail. Also encountered locals fly fishing.

Pretty and well paved trail. Came in the middle of January after the rain. So yes, it’s super icy on some parts so make sure you’re careful so you don’t twist some ankles. It’s marked as moderate, but 90% of it was pretty flat. Only walking back from the portion near the other parking lot (not the visitor center one) was a little hilly.

Family friendly. Not to bad of hills. Short trail. Beautiful views. Definitely recommend if you are looking for nice views without a long walk

The falls were gorgeous but the massive crowds of people viewing them as well were not. I’d definitely come back on a Tuesday morning, not the weekend.

Busy, lots of families and dogs out on a Friday afternoon. It is steep up at the beginning and steep down, would recommend hiking poles. Some parts down by the river were muddy.

More easy than moderate, but great views of the falls.

An extremely popular trail so lots of people but still a great hike that include Triple Falls, Hooker Falls, High Falls and the covered bridge. All in all a great afternoon hike that is easy to accomplish with some beautiful waterfall views.

Don't get me wrong - the waterfalls are beautiful, straight out of The Last of the Mohicans (literally). But this is more of a tourist attraction than a hike. It's difficult to enjoy the beauty of the waterfalls when several loud families are lined up behind you waiting to take a picture.

I'll preface this by saying I did not do the exact route shown here on AllTrails but rather opted to do a similar (but much longer 6.4 miles) route portrayed in a trail guide book. Needless to say I was able to see 4 different waterfalls. Was the perfect trail to do on a sunny fall afternoon with my dog. Trail was a bit busy up to the 2nd waterfall with hikers but after that we pretty much had the trail to ourselves along with a few bikers. Scenery got much less exciting after the 2nd waterfall as you are basically just following a DNR road but would do again if given the opportunity. Aside from being much more crowded than the Pisgah Forest trails we had done previously there is nothing negative I can say about this loop/trail. Not suggested to bring small kid as distance might be too much (unless you modify to in-n-out).

I would recommend this trial for anyone wanting great views and beautiful sights of waterfalls. It’s a dog friendly trail. The trail is well kept with a few rocky areas. It took us two hours to complete and we viewed the covered bridge and three waterfalls, High Falls, Triple Falls, and Hooker Falls.

Super easy! Great for children. Heavy traffic and it’s pretty impossible to find parking on a weekend. The falls are beautiful.

Beautiful water falls!!! Definitely something you can do with older family members and small children. Took (and sometimes carried on my shoulders) four and three year old boys. They loved it. Some uphill hiking, but short and easy. The falls are beautiful. What a treasure!
