DuPont State Forest: The Other Falls

  • December 1, 2012 · 8:30 AM
  • INGLES Supermarket

Let's do an extended loop in DuPont State forest that will take us to Wintergreen Falls (pictured) and Grassy Creek Falls. Wintergreen Falls is my personal favorite of all the Falls in Dupont, perhaps because it is secluded and peaceful. Grassy Creek Falls is a long cascade that is worth a visit and a trail alongside will take us to different view points.Along the way we will also visit one of the historic cemeteries that are incorporated into the forest. This is a 7 to 8 mile hike that I would rate as easy so some of y'all might rate it as moderate.

Please be on-time for the meet-up We will assemble car pools and depart within 15 minutes of that time.Please help out drivers with a few bucks for gas!

According to Park Rules, dogs must be on a leash.

    Cathi, It is really hard to predict length. Estimating pace, picture taking time and general dawdling at falls I'm thinking we will be back by 2 or 3.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
