There (to Laurel Falls from Dennis Cove):
Elizabethton, take 19E toward Hampton. Once in Hampton turn
left onto highway 321 toward Mountain City. Proceed approximately
2.0 miles and you'll see the lake on your left. There will
be a "Cherokee National Forest" sign immediately on your
left. This is where I parked.
- From the
parking area, walk on down the road a bit toward the paved
recreational area at the lake. There are restrooms
there. Follow the white blazes (north on the A.T.). In
2.9 miles you come to the dam. There is also an A.T. shelter
