Waterfall Wednesday is back this week on It’s Just Life. Today’s waterfall is another one located in beautiful DuPont State Forest.
There is so much to see in DuPont and this waterfall is a prime example of the beauty that is around.
This is a smaller waterfall and not as popular as some of the other ones in the park so chances are there won’t be a lot of people here when you visit. It is beautiful and the hike to it is a pretty easy one and round trip is under 3 miles.
A few facts about the falls from my favorite book North Carolina Waterfalls: A Hiking and Photography Guide by Kevin Adams include the following:
River: Grassy Creek
River Basin: French Broad
Elevation: 2600 feet
Type and Height: Steep sliding cascade, ending in a short free fall with the total height being about 20 feet.
We accessed the trail from Guion Farm Access Area where there is a huge parking lot. The trail is clearly marked once you get into the forest and the hike is a fairly easy one. It was a bright sunny but cool day when we hiked but we still worked up a little bit of a sweat. (Could it be our out of shape condition? Never. )
Spring is in the air and you know how much I have been looking forward to spring. Hopefully we will find more time for hiking and enjoying the great outdoors.
Thank you for stopping by today to see what is going on. Leave me a comment and tell me if you see signs of spring where you live and Comment for a Cause for Folds of Honor.
