Click to open more sample pages in PDF form
Friends of DuPont Forest has published a new 18-page booklet detailing suggested trail routes around the Forest. Because of the crowded trails around the primary waterfalls (High Falls, Triple Falls, and Hooker Falls), this guide focuses on other routes that avoid these high traffic areas and reveal other interesting features of the Forest.
The Guide is $10 plus $1.25 shipping, and proceeds help support Friends of DuPont Forest in its critical mission of maintaining and improving the 90 miles of multi-use trails.
