"Wintergreen Falls is the forgotten waterfall of DuPont State Forest. We’ve never seen another soul there on our visits. Yes, this cataract is the least spectacular of the cascades at DuPont, but it does afford the most solitude and a nice hike as well." Read more

Wintergreen Falls is a medium waterfall with a bunch of much larger falls in the area. DuPont is a pretty area with much to see. Hiking trail range from easy to strenuous and are good family day hike. I recommend a visit, just be careful of the wildlife.
