Hike to Hooker Falls

0.8 Miles Total - 100 ft gain - Out-and-Back Trail

Originally added by Jared Beeler

Beautiful place to photograph and swim at Hooker Falls.

Hooker Falls is located in Dupont State Forest in southern North Carolina. The hike is a great hike for kids to go on and to have a picnic. The waterfall is a beautiful waterfall that offers a great place to swim. Along the hike there are also other places you can see the river and you can swim at some of the small parts of the river. The parking for the trailhead is large but during the summer months it can be crowded then you will have to park up and down the road. Nearby is the trailhead to Triple Falls and High Falls.
