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.

Proceed west and then turn left on the gravel road which crosses the top of the falls under a covered bridge.

A nice downhill hike to a 25 foot waterfall. From the Guion Access Area proceed south on the Tarklin Bridge Trail. There is a trail map posted at the parking area. The trail is predominantly downhill and marked with red blazes. The trail is wide and can accommodate horses, mountain bikers and hikers. Numerous boulders that have broken from the surrounding mountain sides are scattered on both sides of the trail giving the area a very primitive look. At the Grassy Creek Trail, go left until it intersects with the Wintergreen Falls Trail. From here it is a short 1/4 mile hike to the base of the 25 foot waterfall. Wintergreen Falls has a few flat rocks to sit on for a lunch or a nap. Backtrack out the way you came in for a total hike of about 3 miles.Show more

This hike is considered a strenuous hike. It only gets very steep at the end, during the final climb to the summit. The strenuous final climb to the summit of Stone Mountain offers a stunning 360 degree view that you won't soon forget. This hike is an out and back, not a loop. When you reach the summit of Stone Mountain, retrace your steps back to the parking lot. Hiking Directions: From Sky Valley Road parking lot: Take Rocky Ridge Trail to Stone Mountain Trail, left on Stone Mountain Trail, continue on Stone Mountain Trail to summit; follow Stone Mountain Trail back down to Rocky Ridge, and Rocky Ridge back to the parking lot.Show more
