Detailed Trail Descriptions from Our Guidebooks

"There are so many miles of trails in the sprawling natural area of the DuPont State Forest, it is hard to choose, Possibly the most popular—for both dogs and people, is this one: the Triple Falls Trail. Quick and to the point—it brings you through some of the prettiest parts of the forest on a steep but fast trail to see some of the loveliest waterfalls. The best times of year to hike this trail are in spring when wildflowers are profuse and in fall when the colorful leaves framing the waterfalls make for postcard-perfect scenery. Be aware that the forest allows hunting by permit only."

"It’s not often that one trail leads to two stupendous waterfalls. Well you’re in luck! You’ll get your first glimpse of the glorious Little River crossing a bridge over it near the trailhead. The Triple Falls Trail then follows the river upstream before leading you to an overlook with a stunning view of Triple Falls. Next a spur trail leads out to the middle of this fanciful waterfall. The main path then continues following the river upstream before leading to an overlook of the breathtaking High Falls."

Very scenic and very popular trail in DuPont Forest. Can get very crowded on week-ends. Beautiful views of the falls along the trails. Have hiked this trail numerous times, always a treat.

This is a well developed and heavily traveled trail. It is a very scenic view. There is a reason so many movies are shot in this park. I would rate the trails easy/moderate because of graveled pathways. Going to DuPont always puts a smile on my face and this hike needs to be on everyone's bucket list.
