Laurel Falls Trail

Meet Park Ranger Carey Jones at the Greenbrier Ranger Station no later than 9 a.m. on Saturday, October 27, and carpool to this increasingly popular hike.

There are multiple waterfalls on this walk, so be prepared to do at least one serious creek crossing, depending on recent rainfall.  A hiking stick will be an asset on this one.

Carey considers this a “Naturalist Ramble” and will address the flora, fauna, and natural history of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park along the way.

Bring a lunch (snacks), water, rain gear, sturdy hiking boots, and a camera. Return time will be approximately 1 p.m.

Don’t wait for a reminder e-mail, as the limit is 25 participants. The fee is $5 for GSMA Members in good standing, and $10 for non-members. Children 10 and under are free.  Call 865-436-7318, Ext. 222 or 254 to register.
