1)   Laurel Falls: 2.5 mi. round trip; easy hike with paved trail. Easiest waterfall access. Very popular trail. During the hike you walk through a progression of cascades before arriving at the flat rocky base of a 60-ft waterfall.

2)   Baskins Creek Falls: 3.8 mi. round trip

3)   Grotto Falls: 2.6 mi. round trip

Well guys if you read the shoutbox you know about my bad news. Well that is beside the point, we need to get to business about this hike. I think all the trails have their own unique beauty & which ever one yous guys choose will be great. I personally think if yous guys can do all 3 that would be great. They are all pretty easy trails & from all the googling I've done well worth it.

Ok, makes sense ppl will be tired after water rafting, but wednesday ppl are going to dollywood and who knows when they coming back so wednesday afternoon might not work either , friday is the driving up in the dragon road and then meeting or something ?

IMO- water rafting shouldn't take longer then 2hr and with 3-4hr of resting we could start hiking around 5pm , btw wednesday most ppl arrive so I'm not sure if they'll be up for hiking but I don't mind either way , I'll treat it as light training routine to try and get in "shape" lol

I'm up for all 3 also.  Just need to know exactly when and where this is going to happen.  I think its close enough that we should have come to a conclusion by now.

If anyone notices, I've made a post like that in a couple different places already.  And more to come if this thing doesn't start to come together, lol.  I see a future of everyone going crisscross directions and bumping into each other as they all go to different things at different times.  This stuff should've been in concrete like 2 months ago at least, especially a free one with no reservations needed like this one.

I think the reason this one hasn't been firmly nailed down is because you don't need a reservation, or any $ to do it.

If there is nothing going down, I am going to leave The Mansion to go to either trail 2 or 3, at 3pm on wed.  Anyone down to come?
