This is a mulit-use trail: Horseback, Hiking and Mountain Biking. I’m my opinion, it’s a far better biking trail than hiking trail because there is not much to see. If you hike this, I suggest being extremely cautions on the northern east-west run of trail. This section is mostly down-hill when traveling counter-clockwise and it is extremely flowing with bermed turns - bikes can (and likely will) be traveling through this section with serious speed. I have ridden all of the trails in DuPont and this particular section of trail is the fastest in the park. If you are hiking with kids - I’d avoid all together. If you plan to bike this trail clock-wise, turn around or be ready to get off the trail in a hurry.

Very easy hike mostly along gravel paths and some roads. Pay off is at the end of the trail arriving at the bottom of a full flow Bridal Veil Falls.

Alright, waterfall is pretty cool. Nothing spectacular.

fairly easy trail with not much elevation. lots of mountain bikes but of course it is built for that too. definitely see Grassy Creek Falls. do the loop for the best hike

love love love this whole area for hiking! The trails are wide easy accessible and kid friendly. You can get is close To the falls in still stay within the parks guidelines for warnings. There’s three separate waterfalls spread out over this area all of them are equally beautiful and extremely powerful. absolutely one of my favorites to photograph

Good hike. Multiple options to lengthen hike. Great pics.

Nice easy hike to the bridge and High falls.

Covered Bridge Trail is a spur off the High Falls trail and takes you to the Covered Bridge at the top of High Falls - btw you get a peek of the bridge on your way to the base of High Falls. From the Covered Bridge continue to the fork in the road and stay left down the Buck Forest Road and continue down the hill and take Lake Imaging Road to the left where the sign to Grassy Creek Falls will be immediately on your left. Continue down to the middle of Grassy Creek Falls. Grassy Creek Falls is a large rolling gentle cascade downstream. While not as cool as the other falls in DuPont State Forest, it is much quieter if you want to get away from the crowds.
