DuPont State Forest
Take your hiking boots (and maybe a bathing suit and a beach towel in the summer) and drive out to DuPont State Forest.
Order a picnic lunch from the Inn the day before (you can even order when you make your room reservation).
Hooker Falls (Follow Hooker Falls Road on foot 0.25 miles)
Hooker Falls is the fourth falls on the Little River, and drops about 11' into Cascade Lake. Hooker Fall was part of the original DuPont State Forest, and has become a popular swimming hole. Care to cool off?
Triple Falls (About a 15 minute walk from the Hooker Falls Parking Lot: Cross over Staton Road, watch for traffic. The Triple Falls Trail runs along Little River upstream for 0.3 mile. There is a trail down tthe falls further up on the left.)
Triple Falls is the third of the Little River Falls, which consists of three distinct cascades, totaling about 120' in vertical drop. The falls was featured in the movie Last of the Mohicans.
High Falls is the second and tallest of the Little River falls, and slides 150' down an inclined plane of granite. – You have twoptions here!
For those who want a good workout:
For those who want to see the falls without the workout:
Bridal Veil Falls Bridal Veil Falls is the first falls of the Little River, and is probably the most unique. It drops off an overhanging ledge which allows visitors to walk underneath (as shown in Last of the Mohicans), then the water sheets down a long, shallow inclined plane of granite before tumbling into the pool below. Bridal Veil Falls is a much longer hike.
