This waterfall in popular DuPont State Forest is overlooked by most that flock to the bigger waterfalls High Falls and Triple Falls. While it's not a tall one (20 feet), Wintergreen Falls is a beautiful setting on the quieter side of the park. The 1.5-mile moderate trail takes you gradually downhill to the falls, so it's uphill coming back. But it's shaded and not strenuous. This is a popular area for horseback riding and mountain biking. The waterfall is named for the evergreen ground cover along the Grassy Creek.

As you approach the waterfall, you'll pass some beautiful cascades on the creek. You'll have to step over a few small boulders to reach the prime photo spot to see the waterfall. There's enough room for a small picnic!
