Laurel Falls

Short on day light we hiked up to the Greenbrier Trail (3.1 miles) via Laurel Falls trail head located in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.  Once passed Laurel Falls (1.3 miles) it’s really a nice short day hike.  As almost no one hikes pasted Laurel Falls.  At the 2.5 mile mark you will find yourself surrounded with huge virgin timber that I don’t think you could even wrap your whole body around.  A note of warning… this area is very active bear country.  I find myself coming across young bears 2 out of 3 times during even hikes.
