Trip Report: Cumberland Trail, Laurel Falls January 29, 2013 on obsolete29.com

On Saturday Jen and I hiked theĀ LaurelĀ Falls section of the Cumberland Trail. This was a pretty short hike as we only went to Laurel Falls plus Jen brought her DSLR so it ended up being more a photography hike than anything; we surely weren't breaking any land speed records.

Directions

The directions on the Cumberland Trail website were pretty good so no complaints there.

The Hike

This was a leisurely hike with Jen taking lots of photos. We just took our time and enjoyed the scenery and Jen got to experiment with her camera settings and we ended up having a real good time. There were lots of people on the trail including two hiking clubs and various other people.
