For safety reasons and natural resource protection, the North Carolina Forest Service has decided to restrict and contain the viewing area at the bottom of the stairs at Triple Falls. This viewing area will be about 1100 ft2, bordered by weighted posts with double cords and “Do not cross” signs. The Forest Supervisor determined the need based on the hazards at the top of the waterfalls, the ineffectiveness of signage, and the number of safety incidents, littering and graffiti damage to this Natural Heritage area that have occurred in recent years. The viewing area has been put in place today (May 25, 2018) in time for the Memorial Day weekend.
Comments can be submitted to the DSRF Forest Supervisor (firstname.lastname@example.org).
