Laurel Fork Falls

Laurel Fork Falls makes a spectacular 80 foot drop directly into Lake Jocassee and is best viewed from the lake. However, the falls can be viewed from either Lake Jocassee or from the Foothills Trail. By boat: once you navigate into the Laurel Fork Creek cove and catch the initial view of the falls, find the crescent-shaped grotto behind the rocker tower. From land: a 5-6 hour 8.1 mile hike over difficult terrain will require an overnight stay.
