Laurel Snow Trail

Hiking trail through the Pocket Wilderness

The trail makes sort of a T shape. The long stem runs from the trailhead at the end of Pocket Wilderness Road and amounts to a hike along the beautiful and popular Richland Creek. The junction is right after the crossing of Laurel Creek. From here it's about a mile to the Laurel Falls area (to the right) and around two and a half miles to Snow Falls (to the left). It is recommended to hike each on a separate day trip, as there is much to see on both sides. With both sides and the hike to and from the fork, the trail measures 10.5 miles round trip.

Length: 10.5 miles Difficulty: 8 Location: 35.5277, -85.022
