DuPont State Forest

Cedar Mountain, NC



Hooker Falls are a powerful 20-foot falls that are easily accessible via a pleasant 10-minute walk along the Little River in the Dupont State Forest near Cedar Mountain, NC. The NC Forest Service is busily improving the parking area to include a convenience center, and there are many new hiking trails in the area.  Friends of the Dupont State Forest have a website about the forest and the many other falls and trails in the area.

 

Directions: From Brevard, take US 276 south for eight miles to Cedar Mountain. Turn left onto Cascade Lake Road and go 2.5 miles. Turn right onto Staton Road (look for the AGFA Plant sign) and go 1.5 miles until you cross a bridge. Turn left into the parking area. Bear in mind, there are many trails and old roads throughout the forest.  Pick up a DuPont State Forest trail map at a local retailer or at nearby Caesars Head State Park.  Check out the forest's website for trail closures and updates.
