One hike - five hours - three waterfalls- May 9, 2010
1. Hooker Falls (this page)
2. Triple Falls
3. High Falls and the Covered Bridge
clipart of a History BookDupont State Forest is a beautiful 10,000+ acre tract of land between Brevard and Hendersonville. There are 6 listed waterfalls (and a hidden one or 2) and miles of trails for hiking, mountain biking, and horseback riding. Fishing and hunting are allowed also - hunting is by permit only and is restricted to areas outside the hunting safety zones which include the more popular areas. People have died at these waterfalls, but mostly from doing things they weren't supposed to be doing. The area is kid friendly, but use common sense!
clipart - awesomeHooker, High, Triple, and Bridal Veil Falls were all featured in the movie "Last of the Mohicans". Although the movie shows a cave behind the waterfall - sorry, there is none. Part of that scene was shot at the small overhang drop at the top of Bridal Veil Falls. You can get behind the falling water at Bridal Veil Falls, but it is a small area and the cave scene was probably just a set. The two RV Gypsies did not get to Bridal Veil Falls on this trip.

Hooker Falls are a powerful 20-foot falls that are easily accessible via a pleasant 10-minute walk along the Little River in the Dupont State Forest near Cedar Mountain, North Carolina. The falls drop off a natural ledge before flowing into Cascade Lake.

Next, the two RV Gypsies walked back to the parking lot and ducked under a bridge to get to the other side of the street so they could hike to Triple Falls.

After finding their way under the bridge and up a slight hill, the two RV Gypsies reached the other side of the street. While walking across the bridge, they saw a person fishing. Karen yelled to him, "Smile, you're on candid camera" as she photographed the fisherman.

As the two RV Gypsies started hiking Triple Falls Trail, Karen saw a fisherman through the woods and took two more photos. The bridge is in the background.
