DuPont State Forest, comprising 10,268 acres, lies in Henderson and Transylvania Counties twelve miles from Hendersonville. The forest has a car-free policy, and visitors enjoy the lack of traffic. Three spectacular waterfalls, all within a thirty-minute walk, are another appealing feature. Hunting permits are chosen through lottery, and deer, grouse, and turkey are popular game-animals. Camping is not allowed. Mountain bikers and horse riders are permitted on some trails. DuPont Forest attracted 116,000 visitors in 2003.
