Laurel Fork Trail

  I have been hiking this trail for 20 years. It has many waterfalls and plenty of black@blueberry picking spots. If you love hiking, you can't go wrong with this trail.
Says Gregory Walsh

Not normally hikers, and middle aged, this trail was a killer. We had a great time, and the scenery was beautiful, but we were worn out. We ran into a copperhead, twice, once on the way up, and again on the way down. Apparently he was guarding his territory. The
    falls weren't as full as we hoped, but there has been a lack of rain in this area. The trail in some area's were a bit rough, steep, and dangerous, but at least we can say we made it.
