Nice easy trail to get to Alum Gap Campground and save your legs. Not a lot to see other than the still mentioned earlier. This was part of a two day hike for us that included a much bigger loop on the BCG Trail and Alum Gap Camp. really just a nice peaceful area that was not traveled heavily when we went through.
This is a 2.9 trail that takes you back to the parking lot and bypasses the Big Creek Rim Trail. It is a nice leisurely walk through the woods and takes off a mile and 2/10 of the 9.5 mi. Stone Door, Big Creek Gulf and Big Creek Rim loop. We took this trail to shorten our hike due to time and enjoyed it.
First of all LAUREL TRAIL IS 2.9 MILES IN LENGTH. I don't know where 4.8 came from. Not much to see on Laurel unless you enjoy ferns and wooden footbridges. It can be combined with Big Creek Gulf or Rim trails to make a shorter loop. There is an old, marked still site near the end close to Alum gap. It is flat and rather boring.
Great way to get to the Alum Gap Campground. Its fairly easy terrain.
