Most first time visitors want to see falling water, and DuPont State Forest probably has as much per square mile as any public land in the Southeast. The large falls are on the Little River, but a couple of smaller falls on the Grassy Creek offer variety and perhaps more solitude. This page gives a brief overview of the most popular attractions and destinations in the Forest. Follow the link for more information, including directionsThe two largest and most popular waterfalls are accessed by walking upstream of the popular Hooker Falls parking lot on Staton Road. Triple Falls is about a 7 minute walk upstream, though the main trail is quite steep as you approach the falls.

Bridal Veil Falls is perhaps the most unique falls in the State Forest, with a 4' tall overhanging ledge on the upper section, and a long, shallow whitewater incline along the lower section. Access to Bridal Veil requires a longer hike or ride than other falls.If you are looking for a little cardiovascular excercise, take the "long route" from Old CCC Rd. up to Stone Mountain, the Forest's highest point at 3600 ft. The granite dome offers a 180 degree vista over the Forest during spring, summer, and fall, with nearly 360 degree views during the winter. A shorter route is also available off Sky Valley Road.

Want to see waterfalls in the Blue Ridge Mountains? Here! This is it! There are few better areas than DuPont!!!

Bridal Veil is worth it, and the short trail in is pretty easy.

So many great waterfalls to choose from! Hooker Falls gets pretty buzzing with tourists as it's one of the easiest to get to but High Falls offers fun natural slides and less people.
