Flat Laurel Creek Cascades

Flat Laurel Creek as it begins to drop out of the high elevation plateau and drop into the West Fork Pigeon River valley below. This is the first of MANY cascades along this drop. You can't see much from the trail (where this was taken), but you can scramble down the bank to the waterfalls from the trail if you're careful. At the bottom of the first drop is a GREAT swimming hole - cold, clear water, a waterfall pouring into it, and a great view!
