Laurel Falls

Here are some decent pics of the mighty Laurel Falls in Carter County. She is a beauty.

DIRECTIONS: Drive 0.8 miles east of the town of Hampton on U.S. 321. Turn at Dennis Cove Road, by the brown national forest campground sign. Dennis Cove Camp is 4.8 miles up the steep, winding road. However, 0.8 miles west of the camp, or 4 miles from U.S. 321, is the small parking area for the Appalachian Trail. Follow the white rectangle blazed trail north for 1.3 miles. You will cross Laurel Fork on a footbridge, and the last 0.3 miles are pretty steep.

    I hiked down to the falls this past weekend and I would like to let everyone know that the hike- while rewarding- is not for the faint of heart! The last 1/4 mile was sort of like that scene in "Lord of the Rings" when Frodo is climbing up those "stairs" that go straight up...
    Maybe I'm exaggerating a little, but not much.

    Remember when life's path is steep to keep your mind even. See the link below for more info.
