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.

Beautiful trail and scenery. Waterfall was a bit of a disappointment and on the small side. Would do again for the other scenery.

Nice paved trail making this an easy hike, with plenty of rest spots along the way if needed. Decent waterfall at end with good space to rest and have a snack. Friendly staff and clean facilities at the trailhead.

Getting there early on a weekday if possible if you'd like to avoid crowds and park near the trailhead. The way up is paved and you get some nice mountain views through the trees. The falls are nice, but there are other trails and waterfalls in the park that are more interesting.
