This is a great area for a picnic, swimming, bird watching, picture taking, and just enjoying nature!

History of Hooker Falls

Hooker Falls is named after Edmund Hooker.  Mr. Hooker operated a mill just below the falls in the 1800s.

Hooker falls was also the location of a scene from the movie Last of the Mohicans.  In the scene, the characters go over the falls in an Indian canoe.

Our Trip To The Falls

We loved exploring the area and hiking to the waterfalls.  We started at Hooker Falls, then hiked to Triple Falls and then hopped back on the motorcycle and drove up the road to High Falls.

We found the hike in DuPont Forest to be very pretty and fairly easy.  There were some hills and slight elevations that did let our muscle know they were needed, but overall, we found this to be nice hike, with the awesome reward of seeing beautiful waterfalls!

If you are a waterfall chaser and love easy hikes, then this is definitely a day trip you want to enjoy!
