Description

The Laurel Creek Trail is excellent for both hiking and biking. Beginning at the southern end, the trail traverses a ridgetop and crosses a timber cut made in the mid 1980s. The trail then descends to the creek. Several small swimming holes are along the trail, as well as interesting rock formations and rockshelters. Mountain laurel and rhododendron are abundant along the creek. In the spring you can enjoy the wildflowers found, including lady slippers, firepinks, cardinal flower, trillium, and partridgeberry. A bridge crosses the creek at the northern end just before the trail exits at the gravel trailhead parking area.
