Dupont State Forest

Earlier this week I visited Dupont State Forest, a 10,000 plus acre recreational area near Cedar Mountain, North Carolina. I've been to the park several times in the past few years to see Hooker Falls, Triple Falls, and High Falls. This time, I chose to visit High Falls (since it's on the way) and three waterfalls I've never been to: Grassy Creek Falls, Bridal Veil Falls, and Wintergreen Falls.

High Falls, Grassy Creek Falls, and Bridal Veil Falls are all accessible from the High Falls access area.

On the day I arrived, the winds were rather gusty at the elevation of the access area, and showers were expected late in the day. Even on a weekday, plenty of cars and trucks were parked in the access area.

This bathroom facility is new to me.
A welcome enter is under construction and is expected to open in July.
This log building was only partially finished by a private developer when the state took over the land in 2000. A photo and history of the building can be found in the
