Nice easy trail to a small waterfall. Along the way there are a few nice views of the nearby hills and rock formations 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. 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 trail is paved and is suitable for strollers.

The first trail I ever hiked at the park. The falls are top notch! You can get really good pics w your fam and peeps at the falls. It's paved the whole way so strollers and wheelchairs are doable. Pretty easy hike. We saw a Mama bear and two cubs along the way. A crowded trail, but just do it because it's awesome!

Paved trail, although rough in spots, uphill most of the way. Very popular spot. Beautiful landscape on the way.Well worth the hike when you get to the falls, absolutely breathtaking.

Very easy trail! Perfect for families with small children. We took my nephew who was 1 1/2 at the time and he was able to walk a lot of the way. It is a pretty busy trail, so it's probably not one you want to do if you want solitude and quiet. Great views along the way and Laurel Falls is beautiful! Worth the hike!
