Laurel Falls Professional Review and Guide
"This hike travels to one of the most well-known outdoor destinations in the greater Tri-Cities: Laurel Falls. First, follow an old railroad grade into the heart of the Laurel Fork Gorge on the Blueline Trail. Pass a sheer rock bluff , the fi rst of many geological features, before meeting the Appalachian Trail. Continue deeper up Laurel Fork, climbing a rock spine before descending to Laurel Fork again. Squeeze past another bluff before reaching Laurel Falls. This brawling cataract drops some 60 feet into a deep, churning pool and remains popular with swimmers despite a history of fatalities."
