Awesome hike and beautiful scenery! We hiked to Laurel Falls but didn't make the other due to time. Definitely going back!

Totally worth the hike. We had to cross the creek to get to the rest of the trail to the overlook and falls, and I would only recommend it if you're into strenuous hikes. The overlook was beautiful, I'd definitely go again.

The trail is scenic in the beginning, and gets harder as you go. The bridge is out, so you have to maneuver your way across the water. The trial was blocked by heavy trees and we where not able to complete about.75 of a mile of the trail. Besides that it was worth the trip.

Me and my friends had such a great time exploring! This trails offers a lot of opportunities to wander off the trail and explore. Hardly felt like 6 miles! Got a little lost trying to find the trail, but once we finally found it, it was worth the drive!

Great hike! The hike to the top is strenuous. You could just do the creek trail and still see more than expected. The weekends are very crowded. I would go during mid-week if possible.

Easy hike for about halfway there, then the trail gets a bit vigorous. But definitely worth it. The view from above the falls is even better.

Great hike. The last mile and half was no joke. The scurry up the vertical section to the rim was unexpected but fun. Saw lots of coyote scat at the top, but no Bigfoot.

So much history! It's beautiful but beware the park ranger warnings- cougars, snakes, bears, ghosts and BIGFOOT

Beautiful hike, several falls, and all along a very pretty creek. The last pasty of the hike, the assent to the actual laurel falls, was fairly steep. Also, within the first .2 miles, before you arrive at the mine, there is a small trail that cuts off and up to the right, it takes you to another small waterfall, and some beautiful rocks. If you go further up these rocks there will be a cave, worth the small detour!

Great hike, I'll be coming back.
