Historic Oconee Station & Station Cove Falls Hike

I haven’t been to Oconee Station in almost eight years, so when the HHHikers decided to hike a moderately strenuous trail in Dupont Forest, I whimped out.  I wanted to see more Spring flowers than I thought would yet be available at Dupont so took my dog and my camera and headed out.


I’d forgotten what a beast she can be on the leash, it was exhausting.  It’s all my fault as I haven’t taken the time to properly leash train her.  Much to my relief, she did sit and not jump on passers-by when I ask her to.

It’s a popular hike,

It took about 2 hours with lots of stops for sniffs & flower photos.

I went on a Thursday and met a large group of OLLI hikers and several smaller pods of intense photographers.

The trail is well maintained and well marked.  I remember having to bushwhack through to the falls about 8 years back but all is nice and tidy now.

Lots of flowers; trillium, bloodroot, violets and anenome.  Trees are starting to bud out too.
It wasn’t hot but is was warm for hiking.  My girl does like to cool off in the water:)
