Feats of engineering

 A bit of drainage from the hills through rhododendrons, comes down to the path/roadbed, but it doesn't cross it.

Some smart engineer types dug a pipe and that way the water goes under the pathway...to run down to the Little River just a few feet away.

 Some port-a-pottys are located ahead on the path also.  I dare say they were especially welcome during summer picnics down by the swimming hole next to the falls.

 There's a lower and an upper viewing area, and a sign which says...

 Rules of the area.  No rock climbing.  No swimming or wading above the waterfalls. In the 10 years that I've visited Hooker Falls, there have been reports of several people dying who were climbing the rocks above the falls.

First view of white water.


  1. We love the path to Hooker Falls. It's an easy walk and not so crowded in the winter.

  2. Hi Wiliam...it is certainly fun to hear the roar first, then see the big drop of the white water.
    Hi NC Mountainwoman...it is so much easier than going up to Triple Falls. I may have mentioned that I might try that again sometime this year....maybe before it gets hot!


Hi, I'm glad to publish your comments. Let's keep it civil, shall we?
