Laurel Falls Trailhead

Tuesday, August 26, 2014
The Laurel Falls Trail is an American hiking trail, in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park of Tennessee. We went to this falls mid-afternoon on August 23rd weekend.  The drive into Smoky National Park was very scenic and peaceful. We stopped at Gatlinburg Visitor's Center on the way in to pick up a couple maps. It was a wonderful walk up to the falls, I loved that the trail was paved. There are a few places to go down off the beaten path and explore. It was nice to get outdoors and get some exercise. The falls is beautiful but its a little crowded, but worth it.  Had to wait for other visitors to move to get my pics. But overall loved this natural wonder. Definitely recommend Laurel falls for the nature lover.

Trail Location:  Little River Road   
Roundtrip Length: 2.3 Miles   
Highest Elevation: 2677 Feet

Short hike that ends in beautiful reward
