There are no words for how beautiful this chapel is!  It sits atop of Standing Stone Mountain and offers breathtaking views as far as your eye can see!  It also marries more than 100 couples per year, wow!

If you’re visiting Dupont State Forest it’s only a short drive away.  It is located at the YMCA Camp Greenville in Cleveland, SC.

Triple Falls is located in Dupont State Forest, 40 miles southwest of Asheville, NC

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Good To Know:

 

  • You may recognize this waterfall from the widely popular movie the Hunger Games.  This particular waterfall has the scene where Peeta is hiding in the mud and Katniss finds him.
  • Sky Top Orchard is nearby and a great place to pick apples (seasonal).
  • For the outdoorsy types, I highly recommend camping at Black Forest Family Campground if you plan on exploring the area!
  • If you’re visiting in the summer and want to plunge into the icy mountain water check out Sliding Rock, A Natural 60 ft. Waterslide in the NC Mountains
  • Also visit High Falls and Hooker Falls which are on the same hiking loop!  I wrote about all three a few years ago!  Visit that post here.

    postheadericon DuPont State Forest

    As a child I spent weekends boating and fishing with my family and we often ended up camping on some island!  I remember swimming in the Gulf and exploring the beach.  We would set up our tent and sit by the campfire, but one of many memories that I will never forget was when I woke up one morning to find that raccoons has gotten into our cooler and eaten our donuts!  Let’s face it, as a kid donuts are really very important!  (OK, they still are!)  I was excited and sad all at the same time.  I never actually saw the raccoons, only their tiny little footprints running off into the woods and an empty box of Entenmann’s!

    We want our girls to have the same great memories campfires and sleeping under the stars and the DuPont State Forest is the perfect place for that!  It is the home of some waterfalls that will take your breath away and the trails are kid friendly and well populated.  It is located in the Pisgah Forest and you can find directions here:  http://www.dupontforest.com/directions.asp It is located within an hour of Asheville NC, Hendersonville NC, and Greenville, SC.
