Newfound gap a beautiful place. It was a great hike for sure up to the jump off with spectacular views...we went in spent night at shelter then returned to Newfound Gap parking area. I recommend avid hikers to do this trail for sure.

Second Trip to Big Hill, had a much better time. Although we didn't go very far about 3.5 miles. I took my Gold Retievers, one of which is pretty old. 3.5 miles was all he could go. Check out my pictures to see him cooling in the swamp.The beginning of the trail looks like, on the map, the beginning of the Azalea Trail, and we did spot many azaleas blooming (see my pic of the map). This time we left from the trail head by the levee. Crossed the boardwalk through the swamp which is nearly 1/2 mile long. We ended up going to the fire tower and then just turned back.

Appalachian Trail: Dennis Cove to Laurel Fork Gorge

I only hiked from Dennis Cove to the falls but it was a pretty easy hike. the hardest part of the hike is climbing back up the main trail after going down to visit the falls. There are rocks that work as gigantic stair steps on your way back up so be prepared to get a little burn going in your quad muscles. If all you want to do is visit the falls you shouldn't even need to carry a back pack although a bottle of water might be a good thing. And don't forget your camera because this is one of the bigger waterfalls in the area. I last visited the falls in August 2012.
