April 23, 2012 Part 3

A couple of stops today. The first two are the waterfalls at Longshoals Park, right off Hwy 11. This looks like a great swimming hole in the summer. The next is Laurel Fork Falls. I saw the name on the map while driving and couldn’t remember why I didn’t have info on the falls, once I hiked the 1/2 mile or so in, I remembered, no access to the bottom of the falls, only this overlook, although I did walk across the top looking for another trail down. The final picture is Virginia Hawkins Falls. This is a ~2.5 mile round trip hike, 1.2 downhill and 1.2 up. The sky clouded up and made for some pretty pictures.
