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.

Really crowded hike and this was on a weekday. I did this and a bit more. I started at Hooker Falls, went up to see those falls and then turned up to Triple Falls and onto High Falls. From there I continued up over the covered bridge over High Falls and went up to Grassy Creek Falls - that's worth skipping as there was nothing to see. From Grassy Creek I turned back up on Buck Forest Road down to Thomas Cemetery to Sandy to Wintergreen Falls. Then back up to the Guion parking area and then back all the way on Buck Forest. A good long lollipop but this whole area is really easy to hike.

Pretty very populated

Great trail that can be done with kids - moderate due to some steep rocks but very manageable

A great kid friendly trail with beautiful waterfalls.

Great waterfalls very busy area get there early and can beat the crowds

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

Nice views of beautiful falls. More of a walk than a hike. Kind of touristy.

Yes, as others have noted this is not exactly what I would call hiking. Path walking is more like it. All of the falls were beautiful, we walked from hooker falls parking area to triple falls to high falls to bridal falls and lastly to hooker falls before calling it a day, took us about 3.5 hours or so. We brought a picnic which we enjoyed at high falls. Great day of multiple waterfalls, just not much of a hike.

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!

Pretty hike with very big waterfall. Lots of dogs & kids having fun too.

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!

There was a lot of straight uphill, and half of the trail was a lot wider than I like, but the falls were spectacular!

More of a path than a true trail. Very wide path, gravel most of the way. Varying levels of intensity but mostly pretty easy. Lists of opportunities to get in the water. Great views, took my wife and I almost three hours but we hiked it all ..... covered bridge, triple falls and all. Would do it again.

Easy trail for that is good for bringing young children. awesome falls.

Loved it was amazing waterfalls saw them 7-1-18 they had been receiving lots of rain so they were rushing with water beautiful

Cool waterfalls, too much traffic for my liking.

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.

Spent the day hanging out by the falls today. Great little short walk. Bring a blanket, snacks and a good book.

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

We live in the area and like to take company here. The trails are wide, heavily trafficked and easy. You don’t have to put in too much work for beautiful views of the falls. Go early in the morning to avoid the crowds.

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.
