We loved the hikes to the different waterfalls and the ability to get close to the falls. It seemed very crowded even on a Tuesday. We had to park at a different lot and walk to where the trails began. Wish we had looked at reviews prior to doing the hike... we would have worn our bathing suits!!!

Absolutely beautiful! A little busy because it’s summer but with a 11, 12 and 2.5 yer old we really enjoyed ourselves 💙
The trail is not easy for a stroller but a jogging stroller with larger wheels would be fine to take.
We stayed about 3 hours and ate back at the car. At this particular park it would be a little difficult to carry enough food for 5, so eat before you get there and then head back to eat again is my suggestion 🙌🏼

Spent a day hiking at DuPont when in the Asheville area. They have a lovely trail of about 3-4 miles where you can see 3 different waterfalls along the way. The "high falls" are really impressive, then there's the triple falls (decent) and one other. Really enjoyed the walk, though it was getting on the crowded side by the time we finished (around lunchtime). There is some elevation along the trek, so it's not for people with limited mobiity for sure.

One bummer - the information center was closed, apparently due to COVID.

This is my 4th trip to DuPont State Forest and it is definitely one of my all time favorite places ever, especially for mountain biking! With 60 trails to explore and some of the most beautiful scenery in the world, it’s hard to beat. Now that I have a dog specific bike trailer I can bring my dog with me and stay on the wider and less extreme trails , there are trails for all levels of mt bikers. The only downside this year was the lack of camp grounds available due to Covid 19 but the trails were full with many horse riders , hikers and mountain bikers, not to mention the weather was perfect as well!

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.

After finding out the Blue Ridge Parkway was closed, concierge recommended DuPont state Park which was a perfect easy hike on a cold, damp, misty day with my daughter who had minor foot surgery 2.5 months ago and my husband who is not a walker/ hiker. We saw the covered bridge and high falls. It was less than 3 miles round trip.

Without a doubt, the waterfalls are beautiful. And, of course, it is fun to see locations from popular movies like The Hunger Games. However, the "trails" to the waterfalls are shared with mountain bikers and some vehicles. The trails are more like forestry roads. They are not particularly scenic but simply provide the access to the falls. Also, the parking lots were all full causing traffic to simply circle around waiting for an open spot and very crowded trails near Triple Falls and High Falls. In order to get away from the crowds, head out to Bridal Veil Falls.

Dupont has so much to offer - we enjoyed hikes to Wintergreen Falls, Triple Falls, High Falls, and Bridal Veil Falls. On the more popular hikes, the secret is getting there early to avoid the crowds. Makes it so much more pleasant. The short hike to the base of High Falls is definitely worth the time.

We went to Dupont two days in a row to hike and see the waterfalls. They were stunning. Good directional signage, good trails.
My issue was the restrooms were closed because of covid but outhouses were there??? Picnic tables were turned upside down so they couldn’t be used - questioning our intelligence, but people sat on rocks along the path and leaning on their cars.

There are several popular trails in the area. I took the hike to High Falls and enjoyed it a lot. Just make sure you come early or late afternoon as it can be difficult to find a parking spot.
