New exhibit highlights DuPont’s major waterfalls

CEDAR MOUNTAIN — DuPont State Recreational Forest is installing a three-dimensional scale model of its major waterfalls in the Aleen Steinberg Center.

An event to commemorate the installation of the scale model will take place Friday, Nov. 8, at 11 a.m. at the visitor center, which is located at 89 Buck Forest Road.

Designed and constructed by Apply Valley Model Railroad Club, the exhibit focuses on the main stem of the Little River and the major waterfalls: High Falls, Triple Falls and Hooker Falls. It also will include the major trails, roads, bridges and facilities in those areas. 

The visitor center and the scale model are the result of efforts by many public and private organizations, including the Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, the Friends of DuPont Forest and WNC Communities, among others, said Jason Guidry, forest supervisor.

To learn more about the event, contact DuPont State Recreational Forest at 828-877-6527.
