North Carolina's Smoky Mountains at the Triple Falls area.

The DuPont State Forest is located in the Blue Ridge Mountains between Hendersonville and Brevard, North Carolina. Its 10,400 acres of forest feature four major waterfalls on the Little River and several on the Grassy Creek.

The original 7600 acre forest was established in 1996 through a generous bargain sale from the DuPont Corporation. In 2000, the Forest was expanded by two property additions, including the spectacular 2200 acre tract in the center of the Forest containing High Falls, Triple Falls, and Bridal Veil Falls.

In western North Carolina, one of my favorite waterfalls we came across was this one at Dupont Forest near Brevard.

Film location for the "Hunger Games" was shot here.

After a 30 minute hike, you get to notice phenomenal waterfalls, which include High Falls and Hooker Falls.

Definitely was a good thing with all the rainstorms that produced inches and inches of rain. The waterfalls were very alive and timing couldn't of been any better.

This section of cascades on the Little River in Dupont State Forest is one of my favorites to visit. It is a beautiful setting and something about the flow of the cascades really display nature's artistic abilities. It is also a favorite place of mine because it is very easy to access and there is never anyone else there, even on days when Dupont is crowded.

High Falls, Dupont State Forest, North Carolina

Dupont State Forest and Hooker Falls was my first stop on Saturday. I was hoping for just a cloudy day...but geez it was raining steadily the whole time at this stop. Many of the maple leaves had already fallen, but there was still enough yellows and reds for my liking.

The sun started peeking through the trees as the best morning light left us... This is the middle section of Triple Falls in Dupont State Forest.

One of the falls I wanted to knock off my list to visit in the Brevard area was High Falls. Located in DuPont State Forest this enormous 100 + ft. tall cascade is on the Little River, I had been near this falls twice when I had visited the falls downstream but the first time I didn't know it was there and the second hard light discouraged the trek. I almost didn't make it this time as a steady all day rain had put a damper on our day and it was nearing dark but after some coaxing of my good friend Jeff Burcher, aka Von Shawn on Flickr, he decided he would go and we'd take the easy hike and not visit the base. Man, was it worth it, and thanks for driving Jeff!

Rapids on Little River - & [Nearly] Hidden Photographer

DuPont State Recreational Forest

Transylvania County, North Carolina


Recently, Ted (my youngest brother) and I were in the mountains of Western North Carolina for some photography under the guidance of Randy Sanger (Randall Sanger Photography), with Pisgah Inn as our base, a location especially appreciated by Ruth Ann and Beth (Ted's wife), who stayed behind while we went out for photos. We had a great time, even though we got to fewer waterfalls than intended; cloud cover often turned out to be less than forecast, and one day we had very strong wind (severe weather warning-strong) and even some sleet, along with more sunshine than we wanted. Sunrise/sunset conditions were generally poor, as well, with either too much or too little cloud cover. We kicked things off with a visit to DuPont State Recreational Forest, where we photographed Hooker Falls and Triple Falls, both on the Little River. These rapids on Little River were between the two sets of falls. If viewed on a large enough screen, you can make out Ted behind the tree on the far left. Here, and at other locations visited last week, water flow was good -- sometimes perhaps a bit too strong; this was taken at just 1/6-second.

Two of the three falls at Triple Falls in the Dupont State Forest near Brevard, NC. Triple consists of three distinct cascades, totalling about 120' in vertical drop and was featured in the movie Last of the Mohicans. I wasn't able to get a great shot of all three cascades as the lighting made it almost impossible!

This is my first time visiting the beautiful waterfalls at Dupont State Forest in western North Carolina and I must say the park have some of the most beautiful waterfalls I've seen.

This waterfall appeared in the movie Last of the Mohicans. This shot was taken in not the greatest lighting conditions (bright sunny morning) but spending time with my wife and brother in-law in a nice fall day made the trip worthwhile.

A different perspective of this marvelous view of Triple Falls.

This was the first stop of the trail what we saw. We did make it a closer as the previous photo indicates.

Note: The Hunger Games movie was filmed here and used Dupont State Forest part of the movie.

We crossed this bridge when we came to it. Oops, Sorry. This was on a hike we did to Bridal Veil Falls in Dupont State Forest near Hendersonville, NC.


I've been taking infrared photographs for more than 13 years, with a total of 3 different cameras. It's much easier to take infrared images digitally that it was in the film days. If you like this look, I have an album of infrared photographs, creatively named Infrared.


Other pictures that I've taken over the years in North Carolina are in my cleverly titled North Carolina album.
