Hooker Falls in Dupont State Park - North Carolina

Hooker Falls is a short walk to the right to Hooker Falls Trail-head and parking area. There is an observation area above the falls, and you can continue on the trail to reach the base of the falls. This is a popular spot for wading and swimming in Casade Lake at the foot of the 12-foot waterfall. Hooker falls is also popular with kyackers as they are permitted to ride over the falls and to swim and go under the falls. We were fortunate and watched five intrepid international kyackers go over the falls; several times. From the overlook and then again from the base of the falls and Casade Lake.

We were luck this day as a group of International Kyakers were visiting Dupont State Park to try out Hooker Falls.  They represented several countries and were a bunch of fun guys.
