Great day hike! Laurel trail segment is well marked with white metal trail markers. Look for a pink tape marked route 150 yards prior to the bridge. Snow falls segment is also clearly marked with painted white rectangles on trees. Open from 8 am to thirty minutes after sunset. The gate at the entrance to Pocket Wilderness Road is closed based on the caretaker and the sundown time.

Beautiful winter day for a hike. Many adventures along the way scrambling both over and under boulders. Lots of water to enjoy.

Beautiful hike. Starts out pretty level walking an old train bed. Then it turns right uphill for a few miles. I would suggest you hike right up to the falls. It is beautiful. That should be about six miles round trip. You can climb up a pretty sheer mountain side to get above the falls. That climb is difficult but fun. There is another mile of flat walking on top of the falls with great views. Worth the climb. Lots of little water views along the way.

This is one of the most beautiful trails in the Chattanooga area. Went in winter and we could see everything. Amazing views and some challenging areas.

Review of Laurel trail: Loved loved loved this trail. At the time of this review, we are beginner hikers but it has been my favorite trail so far. So much to see on the way up. Several small falls, rock formations, ruins, bridges. You will not even notice your thighs burning on the way up (too much anyway LOL). We saw an age variety on this trail but it may be a bit long and tiring for children younger than 5 or 6. When you come to the first fork, if you go straight instead of to the right, it is a bit easier so depends on if you want a creek side flatter hike for a bit or go up the hill for more forest and more of a workout. They eventually come back and meet together though then takes you to the bridge. After the bridge, the trail forks again. Straight takes you to Laurel and left to Snow. We didn’t take the trail to Snow as we ran out of daylight but definitely want to make it back to go!

I live on the Plateau of Cumberland County and this is the BEST trail I've hiked within 90 minutes of me.The 1 mile walk along the river before turning to tackle the hard part of the trail is lovely and there is much to observe as the water rushes past the many obstacles it faces as it lows downstream . Then you get to climb up, over, around, and under rocks and boulders on your way to Laurel Falls. We hiked yesterday and the river and falls were raging because of recent rain. Truly powerful and amazing. The trail can be dangerous due to slippery rocks from water, ice, and leaves. Take your time and ENJOY!

Great trail. Views and falls are beautiful. One thing I would recommend is to not go off the trail and straight up the cliffs to the lookout like we did. Very dangerous. Well worth the drive and the walk.

The falls are currently dried up. But, the southeastern view from the very top is totally worth the hike anyways. Perfect visibility for 100 miles. - Hiking along the creek bed to start for the first mile is much better than the initial trail. About 1 hour descent if you skip the switchbacks and take the direct descents where you can. 4.5 stars if the falls and creek were flowing.

Great hike. About two miles longer if you follow the entire route. Careful in the evening, the gate to the parking area closes at 7pm. The hike from the falls to the top of the escarpment is on the hard side of moderate with some boulder crawling required. The river was low and the creek and falls were dry. Very fun hike none the less.

The drought lately has not been kind to Laurel Falls. Not even a trickle on the falls so we went toward Snow Falls. Fall colors are starting to show and the views are beautiful. The new bridge at the Laurel -Snow split looks awesome. Great trail for all experience level hikers and lots of remaining evidence from the closed mines to keep it interesting.
