We took a trip up to jumping off rock this past Sunday. Haven't been there since I was a teenager. It was a great ride. Saw probably 20 paragrin falcons. Beautiful place.

Had a wonderful trip up to Jumping-Off-Rock yesterday. Roads were in good shape. Would have liked a little more mud.

Did you do the laurel valley loop? That's probably the best part of the trail. Also the other side, Mustergrounds , has better trails but the views aren't as good.

Can anyone remind me how to get to the trail head? I went up once with a group and would really like to go back. Drove by what I thought would have been the entrance a few weeks ago heading camping up in Brevard, but I couldn't find it. Is there a good landmark?

Highway 178 north, cross highway 11, when you pass over a bridge (8.1 miles) that has stone work turn left into the entrance, Laurel Valley road. That entrance is the easiest to find but closes January 15th.

How difficult of a ride is this. Sounds great but curious of what I might be getting into
