The Flat Laurel Creek Trail leads you into the Shining Rock Wilderness, which boasts an impressive five peaks above 6,000 feet. The views are stunning, and Flat Laurel Creek is brimming with character. While the dogs wade out into the water, you’ll sit alongside it, taking in the sights of the immense Sam Knob. The rock-faced mountain dwarfs the tall pine trees soaring above the waterway. Rock cairns left by campers pique your curiosity, as the crystal-clear water passes over a shallow rocky creek bed.
