Access to Triple Falls on the Little River in NC was long forbidden by private corporate ownership. The land was bought by the state in the late 90's and Dupont State Forest was created. The State Forest managers initially prohibited paddling in the Forest, because of safety concerns. American Whitewater met with the Forest managers and the result of our conversation was a lifting of the prohibition in 2002. Since then, numerous safe and successful descents of several waterfalls in the Forest have been made, with no accidents. Responsible choices keep access open, so be safe out there.
