DuPont State Recreational Forest is an outdoors lover's dream with many waterfalls and 86 miles of trails on protected 10,000 acres. Located between Brevard and Hendersonville, it's an easy 40-mile drive from Asheville. Most visitors flock to the three-mile roundtrip hike to three waterfalls (Hooker, Triple and High Falls). But there's so much more to explore! Take a seven-mile waterfall hike or trek to the top of Cedar Rock or Stone Mountain for mountain views. It's also one of North Carolina's best mountain biking and horseback riding areas too.

For more solitude and to avoid the weekend crowds, arrive early and visit on weekdays.

Free parking! Great long picnic tables for being able to stop for a meal... short mile hike to a fabulous Waterfall with a lagoon... it was such an unexpected find on our trip to Sliding Rock!!
