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.

Very nice, easy hike to get your blood pumping. Didn't seem to be affected by the fires at all which is great because walking through the tall trees was just lovely. Falls are pretty cool and easy to get through. My boyfriend and I hiked to the falls and back in about an hour.
