“80 foot high waterfall!”
Laurel Branch and the 80-foot high Laurel Falls are named for mountain laurel, an evergreen shrub which blooms along the trail and near the falls in May. The waterfall consists of an upper and a lower section, divided by a walkway which crosses the stream at the base of the upper falls. Laurel Falls is one of the most popular destinations in the park and parking at the trailhead is limited. The area is especially busy on weekends year-round and on weekdays during summer.
This was SO fun for the kids. super easy paved trail with beautiful views of the mountains. There is a bridge that goes over the middle of the waterfall when you get to it... if you wear water shoes or hiking boots you can even walk down the rocks to the very bottom of the falls (I would recommend this if you are even a little bit interested in staying out of the huge crowd at the waterfall)
It happened to be raining when we went to see it but was worth the 2.2 mile hike there and back.
Nice paved hike all the way to the falls. It has a bit of an incline, but the falls make it worth the work. Very busy as this is one of the most popular falls to visit.
Visit the website, some areas are closed for improvements.
A beautiful falls and well worth the walk.
