Triple Falls trail to close for repairs

Throughout the month of May, visitors to DuPont State Recreational Forest, a popular destination for locals and out-of-towners, should expect several temporary closures for Triple Falls Trail.

Exact dates and duration of the closures will vary and may be extended if weather conditions require it.

“Beginning in May, we’ll be working along Triple Falls Trail to specifically address the management of water flow and to remedy erosion issues that have occurred over time,” said Jane Dauster, recreational specialist at DSRF. “Heavy equipment will be required to complete some of this work, and temporarily closing this trail is our best means to ensure the work can be done safely, efficiently and with minimal impact to the visitor experience.”
While this work is underway on the forest, visitors should prepare to adjust plans and take alternate routes during visits. “Visitors should pay close attention to signage and barricades while exploring the forest. Referring to our general forest map, which is available on our website and in our information kiosks across the forest, can help visitors identify other trails to consider in the event Triple Falls Trail is closed during their visit. Trail closures are listed on our website, and we encourage visitors to check that information before arriving at the forest,” she added.
DSRF spans more than 12,400 acres and features spectacular waterfalls, unique ecological communities, lakes and an extensive trail system that offers around 82 miles of publicly accessible trails and roads across the forest. Triple Falls Trail is 0.4 miles of the DSRF trail system. For up-to-date information about trail closures, visit
