So beautiful! Difficult at times but worth it

trail was marked well and had some nice spots down at the gorge such as The Narrows. steep toward the end but good hike.

Tougher than expected but had a great time. Lots of inclines and declines so pack light!

Easy hike to a lovely creekside campsite.

We hiked from laurel valley to the top of Sassafras Mountain. It's 4.7 miles with a pretty consistent incline the whole way. It was very well maintained and a great hike! We definitely got a good workout!

This is a lovely hiking area with lots of camping spots and scenic views. You do need to watch for bears and bees, although the bees seem very tame.

This is where I decided to take my wife on her first overnight hike. It was the perfect trail for a good experience with primitive camping.

Hiked on Saturday (5/24). The trail is relatively easy. However coming up from the gorge can be a bit of a workout. Camping is now prohibited near the creek due to the risk of dead trees falling. There are lots of places to sit and enjoy a lunch.

Great trail and well maintained.

We hiked this trail today. Weather was partly cloudy with occasional rain showers. This trail was really quite easy in my opinion and I rarely hike. The falls at the narrows was worth the hike. We didn't see a single person on the trail. Would suggest it for a family hike!

Have done this trail a few times always for the purpose of camping. Will be going back. It offers so much for so many, day hikes along the sluice, fishing, or just plain relaxing.
