Highlights
  • High Falls - High Falls is one of the most stunning waterfalls in Western North Carolina. If weather and time allows you will also explore the base of the falls to get up close to the falls and feel the mist and breeze :)
  • Hooker Falls - Hooker Falls is the first waterfall we will explore on our hike. This is a beautiful, serene location - perfect for making and enjoying a cup of coffee together. You will sit and enjoy the falls while leaning how to make a great cup of coffee outdoors.
  • Triple Falls Trail - Triple Falls is the second waterfall on the hike. For these falls, we will view them from the overlook area. The overlook is at the top of the steepest climb of the day so we will stop there for a water break and time to take photos of this super pretty waterfall. :0

Additional Information

Are you a fan of hiking and coffee? You’ve stumbled upon the perfect spot.

Our passion is for savoring exceptional coffee and engaging in meaningful dialogue in the great outdoors.

Our vicinity, Brevard, boasts of over 300 waterfalls, making it a challenge to decide where to journey during your stay. We strive to ease that choice - we’ll guide you to three of the most breath-taking waterfalls along a 3.5-mile route. The trail predominantly consists of level, gravel pathways, with two steep stretches spanning around 70 yards that are sure to increase your pulse. But fear not, the scenic sights at the end of these climbs make it all worth the effort.

Here’s our itinerary.

  1. Your journey will begin at The Hooker Falls parking lot located in DuPont State Forest, with a trek to Hooker Falls. We’ll take a pause here to brew and enjoy a cup of coffee amidst nature. We’ll also guide you through the art of brewing coffee in the wilderness, including filtering water from the waterfall.

  2. Our next destination will be Triple Falls. It will involve a steep ascent, but we’ll pace it out. Rest assured, the panoramic view from the top is absolutely worthwhile.

  3. Once we’ve captured memories at Triple Falls, we will continue our adventure to High Falls - the perfect grand finale to our exploratory escapade.

A Magical Experience with Great Coffee and Conversation - Katlyn provided an incredible guided tour that we thoroughly enjoyed. She was personable, knowledgeable, and easy to talk to, ensuring that we were able to fully appreciate the beauty of the hike without having to worry about directions or the next steps. Upon our arrival, Katlyn greeted us with steaming hot coffee and created a beautiful setting at the first waterfall. She even packed extra snacks for us to enjoy along the way. Throughout the journey, she was excellent at keeping up with our pace, allowing us to stop frequently and happy to take pictures of us. By the end of the trip, it felt like we were spending time with a close friend. We will be eager to hike with Katlyn again when we're in the area for another adventure.

Beautiful - You don't need a guide for this little hike. It is very pretty back there but be careful near Cedar Mountain. There is a lot of crime in this area. East Fork has vandals, thieves and drug addicts. Lock your car and take your belongings. They don't want to tell you this because of tourism.

Disappointed that we did not get the tour experience - Our local hike guide did not get notice of our booking so did not show at our scheduled time; however, she was very responsive when we contacted her to inform of our disappointment and immediately refunded our monies. We will try again when we return to the area.
