One hike - five hours - three waterfalls - May 9, 2010
1. Hooker Falls
2. Triple Falls (this page)
3. High Falls and the Covered Bridge
Geology: Triple Falls is a 125-foot waterfall that flows on the Little River through the Dupont State Forest in Transylvania County. It is one of 4 major waterfalls on the Little River in this area, the others being High Falls, Hooker Falls, and Bridal Veil Falls. Triple Falls has 3 distinct, different types of waterfalls.
clipart of a History BookTriple Falls has been known for years to local residents. In the 1990s, Dupont Forest was sold to the State of North Carolina, and as Dupont has completed cleanup of various areas, those areas have been made open to the public. A photograph of Triple Falls was one of the tools used to convince the state to purchase the property, which is now a 10,000-acre state forest.

Then the two RV Gypsies walked towards the middle and upper falls. The rocks were wet and a bit slippery.

Many people were coming down from the upper area (some slid down on their butts). It is much steeper then it appears in the photo. Even the dog had to think twice before climbing down the rocks.
