WALKING THE (RIVER) WALK
... A Pictorial Of LOTM'S Beautiful Falls ...
At the time of our preparing the guide book, On The Trail Of The Last Of The Mohicans, the four waterfalls described on this page resided on private property, that of the DuPont Corporation in Transylvania County, North Carolina. One of the terms I had to agree to in order to gain access to the property to photograph was that I would not disclose the location of these stunning waterfalls in the book. I didn't. A couple of years ago, the company property was sold to Sterling Diagnostic Imaging, and then, about a year ago, one of the falls, Hooker Mills, was transferred to the State of North Carolina Forest Service as a part of the newly created DuPont State Forest. As part of THE GREAT MOHICAN GATHERING OF 1999, Sterling has opened their gates to accommodate a group of LOTM fans, from all around the globe, to view these spectacular sites.

The four waterfalls of this feature can be found along a 2-mile stretch of the Little River, which meanders its course along the Transylvania/Henderson County line. Key scenes out of The Last of the Mohicans were filmed here. We'll share them with you now ... Some of these shots are contained within the pages of On The Trail ... Others are newly captured images taken on a recent excursion ... April, '99
