The hike to Laurel Falls was well worth crossing the river where the bridge is out. They are currently working on it. With all the rain we have received during this season, the amount of water that is falling is incredible. Like other reviews I have read, I was super glad that I wore hiking pants. You have to climb over a few trees and the bugs and poison ivy is bad this time of year. I doused myself in bug spray before heading out. Laurel Falls trail is clearly marked although Snow falls trail gets really tricky in several spots. I finally arrived to a trail marker with an arrow pointing up and then there is no clear path of which way to go after that. So I never made it to see Snow falls. The hiking trail itself and the beauty you see along the river and the bridge across was worth the attempt to find it though. I will definitely return for more beautiful hikes. I can’t wait to get pics of laurel falls in each season.
