The legs ached and we were short of breath as we pushed further up the mountain trail. Walking straight up one trail for what seemed like forever, we could finally hear the sounds of crashing water ahead. Just beyond a wall of trees, in a clearing, we saw the mist rise up from Triple Falls.
The power of the water falling as it poured over the rocks was quite a sight and well worth the hike. For the next half hour we sat next to the falls eating some snacks and preparing for the next leg of the hike in one of the best kept secrets in North Carolina-- DuPont State Forest between Hendersonville and Brevard.
