Friends of DuPont Forest is a membership organization dedicated to the preservation of DuPont State Recreational Forest, home of more than 10,000 acres of forest, trails, and waterfalls between Hendersonville and Brevard, North Carolina.

Join us in preserving the beauty and adventure of the forest

Single-Track Closed

In response to extremely heavy rainfall, DuPont State Recreational Forest (DSRF) has closed all single-track trails effective until 9 a.m., Monday, Oct. 11, 2021. Forest roads and two-track trails will remain open. Visitors are asked to stay off the single-track trails because wet trails are susceptible to rutting, erosion, and other damage from foot, bicycle and equestrian traffic. Several drying days will be necessary before single-track trails can reopen.

Recreation & Use Policies

The forest welcomes all visitors. We asks that you follow the rules and user policies set forth by the NC Division  of Forest Resources.
