Dupont State Forest – Tour de Falls

If you’ve always wanted to check out the DuPont State Forest waterfalls you’ll want to plan for the Tour de Falls coming up May 12th & 13th, 2012.  Twice each year, in May and October, The Friends of DuPont State Forest sponsors the Tour de Falls, a 12 mile shuttle bus tour that will take you through the 10,300 acres of forest in Henderson and Transylvania Counties‘ Little River Valley to view Triple Falls, High Falls, Bridal Veil Falls and Lake Julia. Shuttle buses run every 30 minutes from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. to allow you maximum time to enjoy the beauty of each stop. You are encouraged to take some time to take short hikes or just go outside, sit, relax and take photos against the backdrop of some of the most gorgeous falls in the Southeast.

Advance reservations are not taken and shuttle service is first come, first served. The tour commences at 1300 Staton Road, Cedar Mountain, North Carolina at the High Falls access area. Just come to the parking lot, lock up and get on the shuttle.  Pets are not allowed and buses are not handicap-accessible. Donations are used for forest trail and shelter maintenance as well as educational projects. The next time you are in the Brevard or Hendersonville area on Mother’s Day or sometime in October, the Tour de Falls is a great way to experience the beauty of the mountains and the spectacular falls found here in Western North Carolina’s Land of Waterfalls.
