Laurel Fork Falls makes a splash as it drops 60 feet over a wide-angled rock ledge into an oversized pool. The popular destination starts in the community of Hampton and enters Pond Mountain Wilderness. Make your way up geologically rich Laurel Fork Gorge. Join the Appalachian Trail and clamber over a rocky spine before dropping to water level, pressing beyond another bluff before reaching Laurel Fork Falls. Here, rocks galore provide repose and relaxation spots for admiring the wall of whitewater.
