A Walk to Hooker Falls

HookerFallsW-1

 

There are so many crazy beautiful places to hike here in Western North Carolina. When we moved I was big and preggo, so we didn’t get to explore much. Once Isaiah was born, we were able to get out here and there, but not as much as we’d hoped. We’re really looking forward to getting more exposure to nature as he gets older. Last fall we wanted to get out, but wanted a shorter hike. We had been to Hooker Falls in the Dupont State Recreational Forest many years ago, and remembered how pretty it was, so we decided to go there. It was the tail end of fall color season and we were able to enjoy a small amount of it. The Blue Ridge Parkway is a huge attraction in the fall because the mountains are just stunning in their golds, ambers and greens.

If you’re in the area and looking for an easy hike with a beautiful waterfall at the end, this is definitely it. Afterwards we picked up carry-out from Flat Rock Village Bakery in Flat Rock. It was about a 10-15 minute drive from Hooker Falls. They have delicious pizza, and I believe the BEST chocolate chip cookies I’ve ever had.

Drop me a comment if you’ve been, or if you go, to let me know what you thought of the hike!

    I grew up around this area. It’s really nice and I love going back two or three times a year!
