Really scenic and beautiful. However, parking is very limited, so you must get there early. Also, the trail to one set of falls was closed - but there was no notice of the closing until you hiked 1+ mile almost all the way to the falls

We did the High Falls Loop trail to see Triple Falls and High Falls. Both falls were beautiful! Then we continued on to the covered bridge and enjoyed watching the birds play. Then we drove to the Hooker Falls access area and did the short walk to the pretty falls. We went on a Thursday morning. If you are planning on going over a weekend, I would go as early as you can as it is a very popular place.

Beautiful waterfalls. Nice facilities.
Well maintained trails.
Pools below falls are stocked with rainbow trout.
My son and I caught 15 between High falls, triple, and Hooker falls, most of them 12" or more.

Hiked the short hike to Hooker Falls. Falls are beautiful, and if you feel the need, you can join others in the water.

This is the best place to see waterfalls! Traveled from Ashville...well worth it! Saw 4 waterfalls including High falls, triple falls, bridal veil falls and hooker falls. All different and all beautiful! Entire hike about 8+ miles. If planning on swimming at falls would skip bridal veil falls as would be difficult to swim there. If you have kids would plan on 1 or 2 falls. Fun for them to swim and climb on rocks!

I love the hiking and Mountain biking at Dupont. The waterfalls are beautiful. I have always found parking, but it can be difficult.

got some time to hike, check out DuPont National Forest great trails for those who don't hike on a regular basis, wide paths, Be sure to bring a lunch if you'd like to enjoy that by the falls. Water is essential as is bug spray and the proper shoes with a good tread. If you'd like to dunk in the water wear a bathing suit and enjoy the fresh water.

My friend and I hiked around Hooker Falls and High Falls. While there was plenty of parking at each destination, they reportedly fill up early so one should try to get to these attractions as soon as possible. These trails were well-maintained, but one must be careful with his or her footing in order not to fall. Some of the waterfalls are very slippery. One should be prepared for significant uphill and downhill hikes. The scenery was outrageous! It was truly breathtaking to look at these powerful and tall waterfalls.
