Explore the most popular kid friendly trails near Hendersonville with hand-curated trail maps and driving directions as well as detailed reviews and photos from hikers, campers and nature lovers like you.

Cute little park in a great neighborhood.
The photos don’t do it justice but it is definitely just a leisurely stroll kind of place, more than a hike. Great place to walk the dog, use the workout equipment, watch birds, and picnic.

Secluded beautiful waterfall - the trail was a little boring for kids, but easy.

Scenic, heavy foot traffic, beautiful waterfalls.

We hiked this trail today and my 8 year old loved it. High Falls is very impressive, especially after all the rain they have been getting in the area. The base was closed because of it, but still the view from the trail was stunning. It’s a pretty easy hike and the trail is very well maintained. Definitely recommend the hike!

Hooker Falls Trail leads to a popular swimming area at the base of the falls and is only minutes from the parking lot. The parking lot is unimproved dirt and is medium sized so it fills quickly. (I was almost the first car in the lot when I got there and after hiking Hooker-Triple-High Falls the lot was packed and cars lined both sides of the road.) Hooker Falls is really just a first stop before doubling back and heading up to Triple Falls and High Falls, which are really the main attractions.

A great kid friendly trail with beautiful waterfalls.

short walk, nice small falls, good place for swimming and kids. lots of people there on a hot summer day because of easy access and short walk to parking.

Easy walk go a neat waterfall!

Nice easy hike that leads to a really cool swimming hole. Unfortunately got caught in the rain, but would normally be an awesome spot to hangout!

one of my favorite easy trails .has interesting points of interest and the falls are small but refreshing..Lots of interesting flora..Not too heavily used the many times I have walked/run it..nice for easy biking, too

Awesome hike! Beautiful and easy! My husband, 3 year old son, and I completed this trail. Well worth the drive.

One of the best swimming holes around!

Super easy and fairly short trail to the falls! There’s a few rocks that are perfect for a lunch while listening to the falls. As others have said - not the most grand waterfalls in the park, but it is much more private. We were there on a Saturday and only had 1 other group of people at the Falls with us. There’s also some spots for swimming, not just at the falls but also along the trail in the river depending on how you get back to the parking lot!

Nice trail, wear good shoes because trail is washed out in some areas. Beautiful view from the summit.

Easy fun walk from spacious parking lot. Slight downhill to falls. Nice little swimming spot at base of falls, and another little swimming hole just below that basin.

Have to do a bit of climbing over roots and rocks at the very end to get to falls, and walk back is slightly uphill. We had no problem, but if you aren't accustomed to physical activity, this would be a moderately challenging hike.

Also, the map in the app is awesome. Several other trails and bike paths crosscross, but the app made it easy.

Short walk to hooker falls. An amazing spot to just chill. A lot of people had floats and coolers with them.

This is not the best waterfall in DuPont but maybe the most private. The trails are nice and shady most of the way. Absolutely check it out after you've been to Bridal, High, Triple, and Hooker Falls! There's no place in DuPont That isn't worth checking out.

Easy hike to a pretty water fall. Good access to other hikes as well.

The directions to the waterfall were very unclear. Ended up backtracking and trying a different route, found the top of the falls, & found a little walk through water area but that was all. Not my favorite

amazing

Gorgeous and peaceful. Hiked with a 2 month old in a carrier and 4 year old through Hooker Falls and Triple Falls and everyone had fun!

Lovely, easy walk to great little waterfall. Good for families. Make the effort to walk back towards the Falls. Great paddling. Went midweek so it wasn't busy at all.

Easy trail and with a sweet little falls that empties into a pool of water before it rushes out into a rather loud fast flowing river.

Easy short hike along a wide trail. Comfortable for walking two abreast. Will come back with a picnic lunch when the weather is warmer

Nice trail with a slight climb to a fire pit and wooden bench seating. Easy for young kids. Very secluded, but not terribly scenic.

We parked right at the trail head in a small clearing at the end of Bowen Blvd. You’ll feel like you’re in the wrong place, but keep going - you’ll get there.
