We were staying in Lake Lure and wanted to find some hiking to do in the area. DuPont Forest was only about an hour away and free admission. It was a wonderful way to spend about 1/2 day (you could also spend much longer if...More

Nice trails, several nice waterfalls, and good vistas for viewing. Trails were very easy to walk even though there was a lot of up and down.

This is a nice state park close to the Blue Ridge Parkway. There are several waterfalls accessible by well-maintained hiking trails. We walked about 3 miles and saw 3 waterfalls. Two of the falls, High Falls and Triple Falls were very impressive. Hooker Falls was...More

This is a great place for the people that want to "hike" without leaving the comfort of a paved trail. Very friendly people. The park is spotless and very user friendly.

This place offers great hiking and waterfalls galore. Take snacks and water as there are no facilities.

We visited the falls and only made it to 2 of them. Didn't have the energy to go to the top. Definitely worth it, though. If you go, stop by Kay K's. Ice cream is a just reward for the day's activities

I would say triple falls are optimum for kids to play around and do a little bit of hike as well. Pools are very expansive their with flat rocks to have little bit of picnic as well.

DuPont State Forest and Pisgah National Forest are less than an hour from Asheville. Both have waterfalls.

The water is very shallow at Hooker Falls, so you shouldn't have a problem unless you get close to the center of the falls where it is a little deeper. A life vest couldn't hurt, but probably not necessary. You can climb up... More
