— Welcome to this week’s Episode of AudioTrek … Hooker Falls, in the Dupont State Recreational Forest in Hendersonville, North Carolina.

This Park / Forest area is home to four different Waterfalls on the Little River. At the top is Bridal Veil Falls, next is High Falls, then Triple Falls, and, ending with Hooker Falls before emptying into Cascade Lake. On this trip, I visited two of the Falls… Triple and Hooker. I know I’ll be back in the area visiting friends, so I have more to explore!

In the 1880’s a Grist Mill was built in this location by one of the three Hooker Brothers who had purchased the property along the river. Today, the mill is gone, but the falls remain, Hooker Falls.

The hike down to the falls was a little over a half mile… going down was easy, coming back up a little bit of work and some serious lung action.

While at the falls it is obvious that this is a perfect “swimming hole” right below the falls. As I visited during the week, we only had a few people wading in along the shore, so the video of the falls is just the falls. As this is a large and good size drop the sounds here are a little more intense and more appropriate for when you want to focus or as background while working. Even though, I managed to nap a bit at the base… but that’s just me. However you find yourself using this… Enjoy!
