Running parallel with a lively creek, you’ll find cascades, moss-covered rocks, and downed trees keep you entertained. As you hike through the damp forest, you’ll pass over rolling hills, with a few quick climbs. Once you reach Big Laurel Falls, you’ll be stunned at how beautiful it is. The falls beckon you to brave the chilly water and take a dip in the inviting pool.
The second you step out of the car, you can hear the creek fl owing strong, luring you into the forest. The trail leads you down some log steps and across the lively creek to a T. The left is the Timber Ridge Trail. Go right, following the wide muddy path west and downstream. The creek is full of character, with tiny waterfalls, rapids, and cascades. Moss-covered rocks and downed trees all add to the scenery. Along the path you can’t help but notice there are several amazing massive trees.
