Detailed Trail Descriptions from Our Guidebooks

"The DuPont State Forest, which was purchased by the state in 1996 and opened to the public in 1997, is still acquiring more land. With trails still being built and a visitor center slated to open in fall 2007, it is a scenic work in progress. Situated on the border of Henderson and Transylvania Counties, the forest is home to some of the prettiest country, riddled with waterfalls, lakes, trout streams, rock outcroppings, and mountain vistas. Unlike a state park, the forest is used for timber management, fishing, and hunting, as well as hiking and mountain biking. Some of the forest’s most popular hiker highlights are the waterfall trails, and more than 10,000 acres of land with more than 80 miles of roads and trails to be explored. The views from the Cedar Rock Trail are some of the best to be savored. To get there, hike a loop formed by combining parts of several trails."
