One hike - five hours - three waterfalls - May 9, 2010
1. Hooker Falls
2. Triple Falls
3. High Falls and the Covered Bridge (this page)
From Triple Falls, the two RV Gypsies continued up the trail until they reached the intersection of High Falls Trail. They then turned left and walked about 2,000 feet parallel to the Little River.

A right at the next intersection (still High Falls Trail) and up a moderately steep slope (about 900 feet) provided the first view of High Falls.

Further up on the left, the two RV Gypsies found the trail to the bottom of the falls (warning: slippery rocks!).

The second and tallest of the Little River Falls, High Falls slides 150-feet down an inclined plane of granite. The falls can be viewed from a picnic shelter, built on the site of the old Buck Forest Hunt Club lodge, or from the slippery trail to the bottom of the falls. Guess which way the two RV Gypsies chose to view High Falls." width="450" height="600" border="10">
Lee Duquette on the trail

The two RV Gypsies descended down the trail and had to maneuver through the massive roots of trees.

Covered Bridge: To reach the beautiful covered bridge at the top of High Falls, the two RV Gypsies continued on the trail to the Covered Bridge Trail. The bridge was built in the year 2000 for a planned, exclusive real estate development. The state bought the land (after a long legal battle) from the developer so it could be preserved.
