Laurel Falls via Appalachian Trail Reviews

Beautiful scenery and the falls were magnificent! Counted about 500 steps up from falls.

This is one of the largest waterfalls in a short drive from the Tri-Cities area. The trailhead is relatively easy to access. The trail is very well maintained and a rather simple hike. For the most part the trail is flat, however the final section leading down to the falls is rather steep making it more of a challenge. Once down at the water there is space to set bags and towels down. The water can have a bit of a strong current, but there is room to just wade around as well as to swim for those who feel comfortable. Overall, the falls is well worth the walk to get there.
