Description

The Laurel Ridge Trail connects the kiosk and parking area to the north with the access road that leads to the Visitor Center & Museum. Although the trail is not long, it is tough in sections. There are steep elevation changes and patches of rocks here and there. There is a nice observation deck overlooking a small gorge about midway on the trail. There is also a small bridge along the trail.

Flora & Fauna

Typical Georgia pine, hickory, poplar, and other hardwoods.
